Wynton Marsalis And Vince Giordano: Live In New YorkWBGO

Wynton Marsalis And Vince Giordano: Live In New York
  • <iframe src="https://www.npr.org/player/embed/168482209/168484062" width="100%" height="290" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" title="NPR embedded audio player">

The New Year's Eve party at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola featured two institutions of New York jazz: the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, and the Nighthawks, led by multi-instrumentalist Vince Giordano. Both big bands share an affinity for early swing, so it made sense for them to tackle the monumental Hot Fives recordings of Louis Armstrong together. A ten-piece band with members of both ensembles counts down to midnight on the East Coast, with panache and plenty "Skid-Dat-De-Dat."

Set List
  • "Hotter Than That"
  • "Skid-Dat-De-Dat"
  • "Muskrat Ramble"
  • "St. James Infirmary"
  • "Jazz Lips"
  • "Ory's Creole Trombone"
  • "I'm Not Rough"
  • "Auld Lang Syne"
  • "The Second Line"
  • "Little Liza Jane"
  • "Buddy Bolden's Blues"
Personnel
  • Wynton Marsalis, trumpet
  • Vince Giordano, tuba/bass saxophone/guitar
  • Andy Stein, violin/saxophone
  • Victor Goines, reeds
  • Jon-Erik Kellso, trumpet
  • Chris Crenshaw, trombone/vocals
  • Ken Salvo, banjo/guitar
  • Dan Nimmer, piano
  • Carlos Henriquez, bass
  • Ali Jackson, drums
