    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.
