Wynton Marsalis JALC Orchestra – June 11, 2014

Wynton Marsalis JALC Orchestra – Woodlawn Cemetery  –  June 11, 2014

Woodlawn Cemetery is where the remains of many of our notable jazz figures rest.  Wynton did all the talking from the stage, pointing out when various orchestra members would “explain” something with their instrument, and imploring them to do justice in the presence of the predeceased who would be very much listening in and grooving.  Unlike a similar previous Lincoln Center-associated event held in the chapel, this bring your own chair affair was gorgeously outdoors.
