Orange Kellin moved to the United States seeking artistic freedom and jazz music. In 2010, he formed the New Orleans Deluxe Orchestra, an eight-piece group that resurrects music from the early 1900s with an emphasis on New Orleans jazz.
Orange Kellin was born in Sweden but made a permanent move to New Orleans in 1966, enjoying immediate acceptance. He began recording within a month of his arrival, working with jazz pioneers such as DeDe Pierce, Kid Thomas Valentine, Percy Humphrey and Jim Robinson. In addition to local clubs, Orange has traveled the jazz festival circuit, playing or recording with Zutty Singleton, Danny Barker, Teddy Wilson, Ray Bauduc, Georg Brunis, Max Kaminsky and Earl Hines. He accompanied Louis Armstrong on his 70th birthday in Newport. Orange has done jazz festivals in Europe, theatre in New York and performed on the sound track of Louis Malle's film Pretty Baby, which was nominated for an Oscar.
He was one of the creators of the stage production of One Mo' Time, playing in New York, Australia and London, where he did a command performance for the Queen. He was the musical director of the original cast album that garnered a Grammy nomination. He has also toured frequently with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Orange has a unique and identifiable style, unlike that of any other early jazz clarinetist. He is today's standard-bearer of traditional jazz clarinet. Orange maintains residences in New Orleans and New York.
The Salon Series at 726 St. Peter is an expansion of Preservation Hall’s mission to Protect, Preserve, and Perpetuate through explorations of music, visual art, film, dance, digital content, and collaboration featuring Artists from both our resident musical collective as well as regional and visiting artists from all genres and disciplines. As a venue and platform for sustaining traditions and fostering community from its inception, #Salon726 presentations offer a unique environment for Creators to celebrate the past, present, and future with new presentations that that cross discipline, geography, and perspective.
