Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band is a Japanese latin jazz big band.

Led by Carlos Kanno from Orquesta de la Luz, the Nettai Tropical Jazz Big Band started out as a group of friends playing for fun and evolved into an 18-piece ensemble. Boasting four percussionists, a three-piece rhythm section, and powerful horns, the group released their first album Live in Yokohama in 1998. That year also saw the Japanese in the United States the following year.[1] They have played at various jazz festivals and venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York, United States.[2]
