Marcus Miller: America's AmBASSadoor

Read "Live In Swing City: Swingin" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Thankful for PBS. The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra is the latest group to capitalize on the trend of bands recording a special for the small screen and then releasing a soundtrack. This accounts for my only quibble: that is there is so little of this music. Say what one may about Wynton Marsalis, he has an ...
