Webcast: The JLCO playing the Music of Gerry Mulligan & John Lewis
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis addresses the compositions and arrangements of baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and pianist John Lewis, whose recorded paths first intersected with Miles Davis’ legendary Birth of the Cool nonet. Neither jazz master was a stranger to JALC—both developed close relationships with the organization during the 90s. Their respective oeuvres, melody-rich, harmonically astute, and brimming with blues connotation, ideally suit the JLCO sound. Featuring the charismatic and high-energy modern pianist Jonathan Batiste.
Join Wynton, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Jonathan Batiste and Doug Wamble LIVE from the House of Swing as we celebrate the music of John Lewis and Gerry Mulligan.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!.
Good idea that of a 2.00 ET set; anyway, as I wish to listen both sets (and where I live the 8 one means too too late in night) I´ll try a little siesta in between and be fresh for 2nd.
Wynton we do love you !.
