The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra presents newly commissioned works by two of the Orchestra's premier members. Ted Nash, who joined the JLCO in 1999, leads the band through his latest piece "The Presidential Suite", a six-movement piece that reflects on great speeches in world history. Actor Wendell Pierce ("The Wire", "Treme") speaks the words that inspired the music. The other new work of the evening is JLCO founding member Victor Goines' " Crescent City", a musical portrait of Goines' home city. The performance features guest saxophonist Branford Marsalis, who grew up with Goines in New Orleans and has been a friend and colleague ever since.
