In Nursery Song Swing, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis playfully utilizes songs you know and love to showcase the Orchestra's greatest strengths: unprecedented stylistic versatility, masterful soloists, and a creative roster of expert arrangers. In this group's hands, the simplicity and familiarity of childhood favorites like "Old MacDonald," "Wheels on the Bus," and "It's Not Easy Being Green" afford a world of musical possibilities. No mere exercise in nostalgia or novelty, this program shows how jazz can transform even the most familiar songs to take listeners on an unforgettable ride. Fans of the JLCO will also appreciate the deep insight this program provides into each arranger's musical instincts, revealing how they conceptualize music for the Orchestra when the foundation is simple but the possibilities are truly endless.
