Jazz at Lincoln Center – New York, NY
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet‘s online performance of “The Democracy! Suite” aims to entertain, inspire, and uplift audiences with the full vigor, vision, and depth of America’s music.
The Democracy! Suite, a new Marsalis composition, was written during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis as a response to the political, social, and economic struggles facing our nation. The piece is a swinging and stimulating instrumental rumination on the issues that have recently dominated our lives as well as the beauty that could emerge from a collective effort to create a better future.
