To many, Wynton Marsalis's big band, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, founded in 1987, is the face of jazz. With an international touring schedule, they have kept the tradition of big band jazz alive while recording an admirable series of discs. Yes, they record their share of classic jazz, but more than a museum of antique music, Jazz at Lincoln Center also commissions inspiring new repertoire for large jazz ensembles. And it can be thrilling to hear music of heroes like Ellington performed as it was composed, for large ensembles of total pros.
