Each year in the heart of Manhattan, Wynton Marsalis
and an illustrious group of performers find common
musical ground and headline a sold-out show
raising funds for Jazz at Lincoln Center’s education
programs. One of New York’s hottest tickets, these
incredible concerts are available for the first time.
Recorded between 2003 and 2007, United We Swing:
Best of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Galas finds some
of the 20th century’s biggest musical stars joining
nine-time Grammy Award winner Marsalis to perform
jazz- and blues-inflected versions of iconic American
repertoire. The album—soon to be released in vinyl,
CD, and digital formats—reveals music’s power to
unite us, no matter where we call home.
It brings the world’s top jazz musicians into
collaboration with some of the leading legends of
rock, blues, and pop, all for a great cause: 100% of
the proceeds will go toward introducing thousands
of children from around the world to jazz, American’s
greatest homegrown art form.
