Just before the corona crisis erupted in early 2020, our opinion was once again confirmed in the Concertgebouw:
Wynton Marsalis is (A) at his best live, (B) even better with a bigger line-up and (C) excels in playing the “Ellington oeuvre”. Therefore, tonight a non-stop playlist with pieces by Ellington c.s. As much as possible live, and as much as possible with a larger line-up!
JazzNotJazz is a show where out of 100 years of Jazz-recordings, a unique mixtape is compiled with useful and sometimes not so useful facts. It’s also about The Soul of Jazz, so some excursions to related styles are certainly made. There are irregularly recurring sections, such as “The Unplayed Standard”, “Ellington Train Songs”, “Jazz Cameos” and “More is Better”.
