Going to see Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra tonight doing a Big Band Holiday show.
This was sheer greatness. If you are even remotely inclined and they are in your area, don't pass up this show. There were 16 musicians - all with solo ability and multiple opportunities throughout. Also sensational vocals by Cécile McLorin Salvant, a remarkable 24 year old singer. A truly wonderful evening.
Did they do any Christmas numbers? I have a Swing into Christmas CD that I pull out every year at this time.
It was all Christmas songs. Very festive.
