Blues & Swing

In this full-length program, Wynton is featured in an intimate concert performance with his quartet, recorded at the Westwood Playhouse in Los Angeles, and in workshops conducted with students at Harvard University and at the Duke Ellington School of The Arts in Washington, D.C.
These elements are woven into a unique look at this extraordinary young artist, already acknowledged by his peers and by the public as a true master.

Liner Notes

“What we find in the history of jazz, according to noted author and historian Albert Murray, is that each generation of jazz musician extends, elaborates , and refines different aspects of the blues idiom, and that becomes their innovation and contribution”
–Wynton Marsalis

Wynton Marsalis approaches the art of jazz, both as a performer and a teacher, in the tradition of the great musicians who preceded him. He plays a vital role as the link between the past and the future. His artistry pays homage to the masters who have influenced him.

In this full-length program, Wynton is featured in an intimate concert performance with his quartet, recorded at the Westwood Playhouse in Los Angeles, and in workshops conducted with students at Harvard University and at the Duke Ellington School of The Arts in Washington, D.C.
