Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet with Wynton Marsalis:
The Sounds of Democracy
(UMS Digital Presentation)

 

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet’s performance of “The Sounds of Democracy” aims to entertain, inspire, and uplift audiences with the full vigor, vision, and depth of America’s music.

Led by trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis and featuring seven of jazz’s finest soloists, the concert’s unique repertoire celebrates jazz’s embodiment of freedom and democracy.

The digital presentation will feature the premiere of The Democracy Suite, a new Marsalis composition written during the ongoing Covid-19 crisis as a response to the political, social, and economic struggles facing our nation. The Democracy Suite is a swinging and stimulating instrumental rumination on the issues that have recently dominated our lives, as well as the beauty that could emerge from a collective effort to create a better future.

 

Filmed at the Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City in accordance with the New York State Department of Health Interim Guidance on Media Production.
