How to Watch

A special one-hour conversation and audience Q&A with Wynton Marsalis, moderated by Pulitzer Prize-winner and UCSB professor Dr. Jeffrey C. Stewart, will follow the performance.

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet's performance of The Sounds of Democracy aims to entertain, inspire and uplift audiences with the full vigor, vision and depth of America’s music. Led by trumpeter/composer Wynton Marsalis and featuring seven of jazz's finest soloists, the concert's unique repertoire celebrates jazz's embodiment of freedom and democracy. The evening will feature the premiere of The Democracy Suite, a new Marsalis composition written during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis as a response to the political, social, and economic struggles facing our nation. The Democracy Suite is a swinging and stimulating instrumental rumination on the issues that have recently dominated our lives as well as the beauty that could emerge from a collective effort to create a better future.

This concert was filmed on September 27, 2020 at Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City in accordance with the New York State Department of Health Interim Guidance on Media Production.
