    On Thursday October 21, in Frederick P. Rose Theater, the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton played a short opening set of jazz tunes that deal with humor. Some were directly representational (Wynton’s Ellingtonian “Back to Basics,” which portrays laughter through a trumpet), some just sounded happy-go-lucky (Thelonious Monk’s singsong “Green Chimneys”) and some were jazz’s best novelty songs (’‘Salt Peanuts’‘ and ‘‘Open the Door, Richard’‘). Then Mr. Cosby performed stand-up comedy for 90 minutes, using a reduced version of the orchestra behind him to cue incidental music to his routines.

    On October 20 at 8pm, the Frederick P. Rose Theater played host to the inaugural gala, with celebrities such as former Vice President Al Gore and actor Robert Redford in the house, and a buffet of artists on stage.

  • Report from the “Let freedom swing” concert

    Posted on November 2nd, 2004 in Articles, New York Times, Review | 2

    Wynton and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra settled into their new home over the weekend. This “celebration of human rights and social justice” offered six commissioned works for the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Each piece was inspired by and tailored for the words of such luminaries as Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu (both read by Morgan Freeman), Vaclav Havel (Mario Van Peebles, Alfre Woodard), Lyndon Johnson (Glenn Close), Eleanor Roosevelt (Patricia Clarkson), Robert Kennedy (Keith David) and Martin Luther King Jr. (the Rev. Calvin O. Butts III). “Each of these people took risks,” Wynton Marsalis said of the historic luminaries.…   Keep reading »
