The Piedmont Triad Jazz Orchestra ("PTJO") is group of professional musicians dedicated to upholding the tradition of the finest big band composers and arrangers (Ellington, Basie, Gillespie, etc.) while promoting the performance of new arrangements and compositions by its members. It is a truly cross-generational ensemble, comprised of some of North Carolina's finest and most respected jazz educators, music professionals, and up-and-coming young artists. Its musicians are alums of the big bands of Wynton Marsalis, Harry Connick, Jr., Toshiko Akiyoshi, Christian McBride, the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra and many more. As arrangers/composers, its members have created well over 100 works for big band, many of which will make up the band's unique repertory.

With unique vocal stylings and an almost limitless range, featured vocalist Nishah DiMeo has been recording and performing for over two decades, covering genres from alternative to zydeco, though jazz has slowly become her favorite. She was chosen in 2014 as the vocalist for the NC Coltrane All-Star Band, which was featured in the John Coltrane International Jazz and Blues Festival.
