Jazz at Lincoln Center – JLCO Fresh Sounds: Ted Nash & Victor Goins

JLCO_lineup0209Growing up as a trumpet player, being in the jazz band – or stage band as it was often called – was a joy. I often enjoyed playing in a smaller group (as compared to the larger bands and orchestras) and learn about a different style of music. This evening, filled with music by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, brought back some of those memories. The audience heard two commissions by two members of the Orchestra – Ted Nash and Victor Goines.

  • Ted Nash – Presidential Suite – based on speeches from various world leaders over the past century or so
  • Victor Goins – Crescent City – a suite depicting aspects of New Orleans
