Wynton Marsalis – The Jungle (2023)

Posted by Green on May 26, 2023as


The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis is joined by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra conducted by Nicholas Buc to perform Marsalis’ original work, “The Jungle”.

Commissioned in 2017 for the 175th anniversary of the New York Philharmonic, “The Jungle” was originally performed to sold-out crowds for five nights straight. “The Jungle” is about what we see in New York City today — the beautiful, the bleak, and the ever-present but often-overlooked commonalities of our shared humanity.
