Merry Christmas Baby - JLCO with Wynton Marsalis featuring Gregory Porter (2012)

December 7, 2012
Rose Theater

“Big Band Holidays” concert.
Holiday celebrations have been de rigueur at Jazz at Lincoln Center since December 1989, when the Wynton Marsalis band and The Lincoln Center Classical Jazz Orchestra presented “A Classical Jazz Christmas.” The tradition continued over the years with various iterations of “Red Hot Holiday Stomp,” in which small ensembles put a New Orleans feeling on choice Yuletide classics. Carrying this ritual forward, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis presented over a dozen imaginative arrangements of timeless holiday songs, joined by vocalists René Marie and Gregory Porter.
