The Democracy! Suite Featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet with Wynton Marsalis
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet’s performance of The Democracy! Suite 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 ensemble celebrates jazz's embodiment of freedom and democracy.
The Democracy! Suite, a new Marsalis composition, was 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.
This concert was filmed on September 27, 2020, at Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City in accordance with the New York State Department of Health Interim Guidance on Media Production during the COVID-19 Emergency.
