JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER ORCHESTRA WITH WYNTON MARSALIS 


Music and paintings share so many characteristics—textures, colors, layers, line, form, shape—and when these two art forms come together, they create a bold new medium. Jazz and Art, the latest studio album from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, lets listeners experience that transcendent combination firsthand through seven imaginative works from celebrated composers. Taking inspiration from artists like Romare Bearden, Piet Mondrian, and Stuart Davis, the Orchestra constructs elaborate, evocative soundscapes that joyously explore the act of creation.
