  • Old Friends Get Together, Feeling Right at Home

    Posted on March 12th, 2005 in Review | 1

    When Wynton Marsalis performs with his septet in New York these days, it is a special occasion. He toured Europe with the band a few years ago, but his duties at Lincoln Center as well as his ambitions to compose large works for big ensembles reached critical mass in the late 1990’s. So the septet faded into the background. But it’s good to be reminded of what it achieved. On Wednesday, at Rose Theater, the band entered from stage left, the musicians chanting in a slow single-file entrance, moving and stomping their feet in parade rhythm. As soon as they took their positions and dug into the tune—it was Mr. Marsalis’s “Ain’ No”—they flooded the acoustical space in the room.   Keep reading »

But trains naturally crept into jazz composers’ aesthetic lives, too. At least, this was the case with Duke Ellington, who worked so much about the outside world into his music.   Keep reading »

    Posted on February 24th, 2005 in Concerts | 0

    On February 24, 25 and 26, for a special series of jazz performances entitled Full-Steam Ahead, the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis (LCJO) revisits a time when the sounds of locomotives inspired jazz. The world-renowned orchestra brings the sharp-edged syncopations and hard-chugging rhythms inspired by America’s steam-driven locomotives to its new home, Frederick P. Rose Hall. Featuring former LCJO members Wycliffe Gordon (trombone) and Rodney Whitaker (bass), the LCJO explores how the locomotive onomatopoeia was reflected in the developing rhythms of jazz in the first half of the 20th century.   Keep reading »
