Music is a good thing. But what we did not know until we started with the research for this piece: Music is also a pretty damn complex thing. This experimental animation is about the attempt to understand all the parts and bits of it. Have a look. You might agree with our conclusion!
Swing House by Jerry Mulligan
Event: The Music of Gerry Mulligan and John Lewis
Date: January 19, 2013
Venue: Rose Theater
Group: Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis addresses the stylish compositions and arrangements of saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and pianist John Lewis, whose recorded paths first intersected with Miles Davis' legendary 'Birth of the Cool' nonet. Neither jazz master was a stranger to the organization - both developed close relationships with JALC during the 90's.
Two legendary jazz trumpet players come together in a Greenwich Village nightclub in the mid 1950s to play a show together, but when it's time for them to solo, things escalate quickly. Directed by Peter Atencio. From the sketch comedy television show Key & Peele. New episode air Wednesday at 10:30p / 9:30c only on Comedy Central.
