The curtain was swept aside for the majestic opening of the new performing arts center for the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. The day started with a parade down Broadway. The performance opened with an original composition called “Call to Prayer,” which featured Victor Goines on the sax and Top Professor Eric Lewis. The next tune was a Coltrane tune that Wynton dedicated to bass player Carlos whose wife had a baby an hour before the peformance.
