Ed Love - Nebraska Jazz Orchestra Music
Nebraska Jazz Orchestra Music Director Ed Love was born and raised in Omaha and first developed an interest in jazz at Omaha Central High School. He is a graduate of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he received his Bachelor of Music Education and Master of Music degrees. In 1972, he was selected for the All-Star Band at the American College Jazz Festival in Washington, D.C..

Ed taught junior high school band and jazz band in Seward, Nebraska for six years, then was hired by the Lincoln Catholic Schools, where he taught 5th through 8th graders in four elementary schools. Ed currently teaches instrumental music for Lincoln Public Schools.

He joined the Neoclassic Jazz Orchestra (later renamed the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra) as leader of the saxophone section in 1978, just prior to the ensemble’s tour of England and Scotland. Ed was named Music Director of the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra in 1979.

Ed brings a wealth of musical experience to the Nebraska Jazz Orchestra (NJO), having performed with numerous local and regional bands and orchestras, including the Lincoln and Omaha Symphonies, the Ak-Sar-Ben Orchestra, Opera-Omaha, the Chuck Penington Orchestra, and the Eddy Haddad Orchestra. He has performed with many jazz greats, including Clark Terry, Doc Severinsen, Don Menza and Henry Mancini.

He has also given jazz clinics and judged jazz band competitions throughout Nebraska, including Lincoln, Omaha, Bellevue, Waverly, Alma, Ainsworth, Ogallala and Wayne. Ed has been a guest soloist with the University of Nebraska at Omaha Jazz Ensemble, Nebraska Wesleyan Jazz Ensemble, Hastings High School Jazz Band, and the Wayne State College Jazz Band.
