  1. Is there a recording available of this concert series? We just added a new nephew to our family, and his name is Wynton. (My brother and sister in-law met Mr Marsalis on the street in NYC the day they found out she was pregnant! They had been to a concert two days earlier!) This would probably make an excellent start to a collection for the young Wynton. I couldn’t find it on iTunes.

  5. Would JALC consider recording a disc of Nursery Song Swing? As a parent of a 5-yr. old and a 2-yr. old, I can attest there is much need for really wonderful jazz geared to a younger audience. Please consider!
