The Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra was a jazz big band formed by trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis in New York in 1965. The band performed for twelve years in its original incarnation, including a 1972 tour of the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War. The band won a Grammy Award for the album Live in Munich and in 2009 for the album Monday Night Live at the Village Vanguard.

Redirected from Opening Night (The Thad Jones, Mel Lewis Orchestra album)). Opening Night is a big band jazz recording of the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra playing at the Village Vanguard club in New York City in February 1966. This was the first performance of the group at this club although the recording was not released until 2000

The Thad Jones/Mel Lewis-led big band began as a rehearsal group that eventually became a regular feature on Monday nights at the Village Vanguard, an evening the famous nightclub had previously been closed before their long run began. Much of the music recorded was featured on the five-CD box set put out by Mosaic (already out of print by the time of this release), but this live CD actually documents over 70 minutes of the band's first public performance at the Village Vanguard on February 7, 1966.

The orchestra came into existence as a rehearsal band around 1965. The first public appearance was at the Village Vanguard jazzclub NYC in 1967 where the legendary Monday Night Concert series started. The band performed ca 12 years in the original incarnation and had world wide tours with several stays at Domicile, Munich, in the '70ies, recorded by Radio Bavaria. In 1978 Thad moved to Copenhagen (Denmark). The band was continued by the remaining leader Mel Lewis, then as The Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra.
