  2. Does the Benny Carter song AGAIN AND AGAIN have a lyric, and, if so, any leads as to getting the sheet music?


    David Hall on Apr 13th, 2009 at 4:42pm

  3. I agree with Brittany, Joe Temperley’s and Dan Nimmer’s rendition of The Single Petal of a Rose was moving.
    Does anyone know if it’s possible to get a recording from the live performance?

  4. Do you mean the single petal of a rose w/ dan nimmer on piana and joe temperly on bass clarinet? They played that in Portland.

  5. i’m an idiot when it comes to jazz music, but what is the song when there was just a solo between the piano and sax player. Please help

  6. Brittany,
    that song is The Single Petal of a Rose (Duke Ellington)

  7. I was at the concert in New York, live on PBS. And i wanted to know the name of the song, the man played for his anniversary, on the bass clarinet? I thought that song was so beautiful.

    Brittany on Mar 31st, 2009 at 10:38am

  8. You are welcome, Bennett!

  9. Just proved that even dolts like you are still with us. Sorry you’re so narrow minded that you can’t enjoy true creative expression. But your pathetic rant proves to me that you’ll NEVER dig real creative expression and choose to hear this world through tiny little ears.

  10. Wynton’s mastery of Jazz, centered by an Ericka von Closed dangling cherry trinkets, was like being forced to swing with Shaw ensemble performing in a VFW Hall or an audience in wheelchairs wearing hearing aids. At least he swung on nursery rhymes as his Achilles playmates and Cybils crying on a red planet over an empty pack of Lucky Strikes can relate to children’s tunes. “Let’s dance to that as Humpty Dumpty is coming up!” These players tripping over nursery notes forced me to award Wynton with my remote control signal, NEXT! Too creepy….

  11. Erica Von Kliest was on Alto Sax and flute, not Tenor.

    Bry on Mar 29th, 2009 at 3:27pm

  12. YES,YES!
    That’s It …I wandered into the room
    during the last bits.
    It was familiar
    yet I couldn’t remember
    what it was.
    It has been haunting
    my brain every since

    Bennett on Mar 28th, 2009 at 10:42am

  13. Did they play Ceora just before that one?

    Karen on Mar 28th, 2009 at 1:06am

  14. I have a question,
    what was the name of the tune
    Wynton and the Orchestra played
    before Again and Again?

    Bennett on Mar 27th, 2009 at 6:56pm

  15. OOOOPS
    forgot the URL.

    Bennett on Mar 27th, 2009 at 6:53pm

  16. The women on Tenor
    last night
    is named
    Erica Von Kliest.
    I remembered
    her name
    when Wynton
    introduced her.
    This morning
    I found
    her website.

    Bennett on Mar 27th, 2009 at 6:52pm

  17. Can anyone tell me the name of the woman tenor player, in the orchestra, in last night’s (3/26) broadcast of jazz at Lincoln Center. I don’t think she is , or at least was, a regular. She is amazing. Thx!

    Jeff on Mar 27th, 2009 at 3:41pm

  18. Just finished watching The Jazz Orchestra At Lincoln Center on PBS. WOW! One of the best.

    Wynton, you’re an inspiration. Each and every musician is an artist in their own way.

    Great arrangements and performances.

    Next time I’m in New York, I have to take in one of these concerts.

    S U P E R B!

    Ray Sheehan on Mar 27th, 2009 at 10:15am

  19. Loved the show. the song written by Benny Carter and played by Sherman Irvey (Again and Again) just blow me away.

    mary pakulski on Mar 27th, 2009 at 9:20am

  20. Heeheehee, Wynton made Joe sit down!!!

    Karen on Mar 27th, 2009 at 6:58am

    Austin casey on Mar 27th, 2009 at 1:21am

  22. Yay! It is on on Sunday at 5pm in Dallas!! Yay KERA.

    Janice Cartier on Mar 26th, 2009 at 11:07am

  23. Wow!! I was going to ask my cousins in savannah to record it for me but nevermind. This same thing happened when they said wynton would be on cnn.

    Austin casey on Mar 13th, 2009 at 7:25pm

  24. It is not airing on any of the three PBS stations in georgia. We have never seen any of the Lincoln Center Programs. They do ait Elvis specials four or five times. Seem kind of bias to me. I have written them several times about this with no results. I guess I’ll have to come to New York to enjoy.

    JOYCE on Mar 13th, 2009 at 3:46pm

  25. Very adequately expressed and written MGB.
    Your words talk of
    the music of masters
    arranged for masters
    and played by masters


    C. on Mar 10th, 2009 at 7:49pm

  26. Everyone say…..Epistrophe, Epistrophe, Epistrophe. Theolonius Monk tune. Arrangement by one of the fellas and the JLCO Tore IT UP!!! Driving rhythm section, clean horns, almost made me want to cry when I saw them a few weeks ago. With all the great tunes they play, it prob wont make the cut, but it should!!!!

    GMB on Mar 9th, 2009 at 4:47pm

  27. Great, looking forward to it!!

    CJD on Mar 9th, 2009 at 10:56am

  28. Oh no! It’s not airing here in portland. Would it be possible for someone to tape it then give it to me? If that’s legal? In the name of swing
