Set list for Summer tour 2007
Wynton is in Turkey tonight, for a two days performance at Instanbul Jazz Festival. Then he will go to Rotterdam for the North Sea Jazz Festival. On the 2007 European Tour, Wynton and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra are performing music from one of two repertoires: The Music of Ornette Coleman and Full Steam Ahead. The Music of Ornette Coleman will feature the big band performing selections by one of the most preeminent and controversial innovators of the jazz avant-garde, Ornette Coleman. Selections may include “Rambiln”, “ “T&T,” “Una Muy Bonita” and “Free”.
Drawing from the Full Steam Ahead repertoire, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will play selections with sharp-edged syncopations and hard-chugging rhythms inspired by America’s steam-driven locomotives. Audiences can expect to hear music by Duke Ellington, the Count Basie Orchestra, Thelonious Monk, Gerry Mullilgan as well as those penned by Wynton.
