Savannah Music Festival: Wynton Marsalis with Jazz at Lincoln Center

Airs Thursday, December 20 at 8:00 p.m.  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.

Savannah Music Festival: Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

Airs Thursday, September 12 at 8:00 p.m. In this episode, we listen to Wynton Marsalis leading the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts.  During the mid-1990's, trumpeter and bandleader Wynton Marsalis was leading his septet, one of the most artistically and commercially successful jazz bands of its time.  When he became the full-time artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center in 1995, he essentially folded his septet into the resident orchestra, allowing him the artistic palate with which to paint the entire range and history of jazz while still offering up new and original work.  In this episode, we listen to Wynton Marsalis lead the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra through this 2009 recording.
