  • Marsalis’ JLCO Swings Full Out in Philly

    Posted on June 24th, 2013 in Review | 0

    Last year, trumpeter Wynton Marsalis was in Verizon Hall in Philadelphia, he mostly gave a jazz history lecture, interspersed with a couple of tunes by small jazz chamber ensemble from his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra who dazzled, however briefly. As much as the audience was entertained by Marsalis, the raconteur (he can’t become that senior sage soon enough) he left us musically parched. This month, Marsalis, was back with the full 15-piece Lincoln Center Orchestra, and it was all about the music, he gave a few brief song intros, but otherwise cued two hours of protean big-band artistry.   Keep reading »

  • Celebrating Duke Ellington featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

    Posted on April 23rd, 2013 in Concerts, Streaming | 2

    Since 1988, when Wynton Marsalis coalesced his septet with Duke Ellington alumni Jimmy Hamilton, Willie Cook, Jimmy Woode, Norris Turney, Britt Woodman, and Joe Temperley (still an active member of the JLCO and performer at this event) to form the first edition of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Ellington’s oeuvre has been fundamental to Marsalis’ mission and conception.
