Black, Brown & Beige & The Best of Basie.
April 26, 2018 - April 28, 2018
Black, Brown & Beige & The Best of Basie. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis plays essential big band music by Duke Ellington and Count Basie. For the first part of the evening the JLCO will swing through a number of Basie standards. The second half of the concert will be a full performance of Ellington’s groundbreaking masterpiece Black, Brown & Beige. Originally composed for his 1943 debut at Carnegie Hall, it was advertised as “Duke Ellington’s first symphony,” and Ellington described the powerful three-movement suite as a “tonal parallel to the history of the American Negro.” It’s going to be an invigorating night of absolute jazz in Rose Theater.
