OPUS is an icon of Wisconsin Jazz, having written, recorded and performed their unique blend of music together for over thirty years. The group is just as comfortable in concert halls as in nightclub enclaves. OPUS was featured in the Vibrations Unlimited concert series with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and has shared the stage with jazz artists such as Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Pat Metheny, Spyro Gyra, Bill Bruford, and many others.

In 2013, OPUS received a nomination from the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) for BEST JAZZ GROUP.

“I cannot thank you (Jim) and the rest of OPUS enough for such a great concert last night. Truly you had the crowd eating out of your hand. I expected alot and received more than I expected. It was a pleasure working with all of you.”
Jim Mooney, Racine Theater Guild.

“And from the top of the hour...OPUS!”
Ron Cuzner, long time Milwaukee jazz radio icon.​
