Savannah Music Festival - Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

Airs Thursday, April 5 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.

And when you're 85, as he is, "long" means from the bebop era to the present day. He remains a distinctive and imposing piano stylist, and his African Rhythms Trio closes the Quad stage on the first day of the 2011 Newport Jazz Festival.
