Title JALC Radio - America in Rhythm and Tune
Season 11, Episode 33
Airdate 23/09/2004
Hosted by Ed Bradley


The quintessential American big band and the quintessential American composer who could ask for anything more? Ellington wrote nearly 2000 compositions--from evocative blues to sultry Latin beats, and from sexy ballads to the stomping juggernauts. With Wynton Marsalis at the helm, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra takes on "Sophisticated Lady," the iconic "Take the A Train," Duke's little known "The Shepherd" and plenty in between. Written by Neil Tesser.
