Recorded in 2010 over three nights during the Orchestra's week-long residency at the theater, Live in Cuba showcases the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis in concert at Havana's Teatro Mella. This is a dynamic two-disc collection that finds Marsalis and the JCLO celebrating the longstanding ties and creative synergy between American and Afro-Cuban jazz traditions.
Wynton Marsalis approaches the art of jazz, both as a performer and teacher, in the tradition of the great musicians who preceded him. He plays a vital role as the link between the past and the future. His artistry pays homage to the masters who have influenced him, and his devotion to teaching the next generation of musicians shows his commitment to perpetuating the legacy of this tradition.
From New Orleans funeral function to Sunday service, from instrumental songs to incredible sings songs. Is a great collection from old albums with CBS, but really is great. Only one unreleased theme; " Precious love take my hand" with the great Marion Willians. Is magic I know this is only a collection from 1994 to 2002, but is a incredible collection. Is not the way of he play, is the best photograph of Marsalis is Soul. If you like Marsalis or spiritual this collection is insuperable. High recomended.
