NYC2012 mustered every bit of glamour it could manage, entertaining the 13 members of the commission with aperitifs, A-list celebrities and a performance by Wynton Marsalis at the JALC’s Allen Room, then dropped a curtain to reveal the entrance to Central Park, where fireworks lit the clear, cold night. Afterward, the commissioners were whisked to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s house…   Keep reading »

  • Photo and video from “Stand up for Jazz” featuring Bill Cosby

    Posted on November 4th, 2004 in Concerts, iTunes, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Photo, Podcast, Special report, Video | 0

    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.
