Every year, the EBU Jazz Producers put together a European jazz big band under the name of the Euroradio Jazz Orchestra (EJO), a project that can trace its roots back to 1965. Each EBU Member may send one musician under age 30 to perform in public with the EJO, with two Euroradio Public Jazz Concerts organized by the host broadcaster. At least one concert is always recorded by the EBU host broadcaster, who is responsible for the rehearsals as well as its logistical and promotional planning.

The next edition of the EJO will take place in October 2022, in Cologne, at the kind invitation of WDR (Germany). The EJO will be conducted by Hendrika Entzian.
