Mr. Jelly Lord: The Music of Jelly Roll Morton
A rocking celebration of the man who claimed to have invented jazz—and perhaps even did. Wycliffe Gordon and Marcus Roberts join New Orleans natives Nicholas Payton, Wynton Marsalis and Dr. Michael White on “Mr. Jelly Lord,” “Fingerbuster,” “Wild Man Blues,” “Jungle Blues” and “Black Bottom Stomp.”.

Monk’s Mood
Thelonious Sphere Monk remains one of the 20th century’s most idiosyncratic musical innovators. Muhal Richard Abrams, Kenny Drew, Jr., Craig Handy, Abbey Lincoln, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra array to tackle Monk’s “Criss Cross,” “Raise Four,” “Bemsha Swing,” the ever-popular “Crepuscule with Nellie” and “Blue Monk.”
