Selections from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis' performance as part of our SMF Live concert series As the concept of a jazz orchestra approaches nearly 90 years of existence, the big bands still around and touring with their own style and identity are few and far between. 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.
