Wynton Marsalis Group: Live In Concert

Wynton Marsalis. (Jazz at Lincoln Center)

By necessity, the early jazz pioneers knew how to make music for revelers. So it made sense that the tunes of Jelly Roll Morton and King Oliver were on the bill for the New Year's Eve bash of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Morton was an accomplished arranger, Oliver a virtuoso cornetist; both were from New Orleans. Naturally, these things align well with the skill set and interests of JALC artistic director Wynton Marsalis. He called together an ensemble of JALC Orchestra members to swing into 2012 with sweet and heat, live from the Central Park vista of Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola.
