From bebop to bolero and beyond, LIVE IN CUBA captures nine-time Grammy Award-winning Wynton Marsalis and the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis's first—and only—performances in Cuba. Explore the profound connections between American jazz and Afro-Cuban music on this deluxe vinyl box set, out 10/28. It features four LPs, a gorgeous booklet, and a download of the album plus a never-before-released song: Oo Na Ney, performed by the Wynton Marsalis Quintet with Chucho Valdes & the Afro-Cuban Messengers.
Recorded in front of clamorous, sold-out crowds over three nights at Havana's Mella Theatre in October 2010, LIVE IN CUBA finds the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performing Ellington standards, Afro-Cuban numbers, and distinctly modern compositions from band members. LIVE IN CUBA is a document of two nations’ indelible cultural connections and of an emotional reunion between long-lost musical cousins.
