This large-scale jazz masterpiece brings together Wynton Marsalis's Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra—composed of 15 of jazz music's leading soloists—with a 70-voice choir performing modernist variants of New Orleans dirges and struts, the modal excursions of hard-bop and the Ellington big-band legacies of brassy interplay, and sumptuously harmonized ballads. Drawing from an extensive repertoire that includes original compositions by Mr. Marsalis, Ted Nash, and other members of the orchestra, as well as the masterworks of Ellington, Mingus, Coltrane, and other great jazz composers, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis concerts are internationally critically-acclaimed. This performance of the Abyssinian Mass will feature the 70-voice gospel choir Chorale Le Chateau, conducted by Damien Sneed.
