In Nursery Song Swing, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis playfully utilizes songs you know and love to showcase the Orchestra’s greatest strengths: unprecedented stylistic versatility, masterful soloists, and creative roster of expert arrangers. In this group’s hands, the simplicity and familiarity of childhood favorites like “Old MacDonald,” “Wheels on the Bus,” and “It’s Not Easy Being Green” afford a world of musical possibilities.
