Eighteen years after its premiere at Alice Tully Hall, Wynton Marsalis’ Pulitzer-winning epic jazz oratorio on slavery and freedom receives its Rose Theater debut in its entirety with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. A high-level conversation with the history of jazz, with a superb vernacular libretto, “Blood on the Fields” remains one of Marsalis’ greatest works, reinforcing his dictum that “all jazz is modern.” Rising star baritone Gregory Porter, scat-master Kenny Washington, and the great contralto Paula West reprise the vocal roles.
