In this episode, we listen to one of the finest jazz orchestras in our time performing a variety of great arrangements. Under the direction of Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra has nearly twenty years of recording and on the road experience. Their Spring 2007 tour brought them to the Savannah Music Festival, where they played this program of both classic and new arrangements.

One group that has persisted in sustaining an international presence, while extending and refining the tradition, continues to be lead by a man that has never backed down in his quest to clarify our American mythology through the lens of jazz. Tune in for a March 1, 2012 performance by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis from our SMF Live concert series.

Well, it&#39;s not true -- but in the history of the music, that statement is heard very often. Wynton Marsalis has found that the best way to combat that idea is simple - keep creating. Like any art form, jazz lives as an ongoing interaction between the artist, audience and larger culture. In this hour, Wynton reflects on his life and music in the 20th century and its continuation into the 21st.</p> Wed, 02 May 2012 02:00:00 +0000 10519 at http://redriverradio.org Wynton Marsalis: Swinging into the 21st Century
