The Jim Bianco Big Band
2013 found Jim in the midst of the "Cookie Cutter" album, a project where he asked 17 different people the same 69 questions. From their answers he wrote each of them a song. The Cookie Cutter record and the details of the process were featured on NPR's 'All Things Considered'.

All-new original material written in a "Big Band" style and performed with a large ensemble. Trombones, clarinets, trumpets, saxophones, etc...
Jim has set forth to write new classic songs and have them arranged in an edgy, modern format. Currently, he is writing the songs and the arrangements with plans to tour and release a CD by years end.
