Black, Brown & Beige & The Best of Basie

30th Anniversary Landmark Concert

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis plays essential big band music by Duke Ellington and Count Basie. For the first part of the evening,the JLCO will swing through a number of classic Basie standards, channeling the unstoppable swing and iconic blues riffs that always brought the house down. The second half of the concert  will be a full performance of Ellington's groundbreaking masterpiece Black, Brown & Beige. Originally composed for his 1943 debut at Carnegie Hall, it was advertised as "Duke Ellington's first symphony," and Ellington described the powerful three-movement suite as a "tonal parallel to the history of the American Negro."

Week Five: Monk Big Band Style and the Columbia Years

As a legatee of the big band era, hearing and playing his compositions with a larger sound palette was a challenge and opportunity that Monk embraced in the 1960s, the decade in which he finally achieved the wider recognition he long deserved, in large part due to his relationship with Columbia Records.
