Jon De Lucia Octet

The Jon De Lucia Octet was formed in 2016 at first to perform De Lucia's transcriptions and archival copies of Jimmy Giuffre's arrangements for the Lee Konitz meets Jimmy Giuffre album released in 1959. They rehearsed with original participants Lee Konitz and Ted Brown and then the group took on a life of its own, specializing in arrangements for this unique 5 sax format by Giuffre, Holman, Mulligan and Dave Brubeck's Octet. De Lucia's own arrangements make up an increasing part of the repertoire.
