The Black Gold Orchestra is a 19-piece big band based in Atlanta, Georgia. Founded in 2021 by Grammy-nominated producer, Larry Wilson, this band is an assembly of world class musicians, artists, and music educators. The collective resume of this ensemble boasts some of the biggest names in music and entertainment, like Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Prince, , Wynton Marsalis, Tyler Perry, George Duke, Pattie Labelle, Usher, Maxwell, Kurt Elling, and Jazzmeia Horn, just to name a few.

Their debut album, “Genesis,” is a dynamic celebration of ALL Black American music, fusing musical elements such as jazz, R&B, soul, hip hop, house, rock, blues, and gospel through the lens of the big band tradition.
