The Flynn and Shelburne Museum are pleased to present Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet with Wynton Marsalis at Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, Vermont.
With a Pulitzer, nine Grammys, and a National Medal of Arts to his name, Wynton Marsalis is unquestionably jazz’s preeminent ambassador. Marsalis’ role as managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and his first-rate work with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Septet cements his reputation. Featuring the best of the best, with each member a true leader on their instrument, the septet navigates demanding pieces with deceptive ease, leaving room for expressive, subtle detail and off-the-cuff discourse. The group’s repertoire includes originals from Marsalis and his bandmates—full of awe-inspiring solo and group workouts—as well as expertly selected standards from throughout jazz history, touching on everything from straight jazz to blues to bop to Dixieland and beyond. Wynton Marsalis has devoted his career to exalting the jazz pantheon; his septet is a clear extension of this charge, encapsulating the immensity of the art form and presenting it with world-class musicianship. For these concerts, the septet plays a program called The Sound of Democracy, which features new works composed and arranged by Marsalis with a focused theme of freedom and democracy.
