William Eddins, conductor
Featuring Morgan State University Choir,
the Choral Arts Society of Washington,
and the National Philharmonic Orchestra
An epic and inspirational jazz symphony featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) with Wynton Marsalis, National Philharmonic, and a 150-person gospel choir. Marsalis has said this monumental work, which was recorded in Los Angeles just days after the September 11 terrorist attacks, is about “the rise from destruction to creativity, drawing joy out of tragedy, and refusing to be beaten down.” World-class jazz soloists and classical musicians share the spotlight as All Rise crisscrosses genres in its 12 evocative movements. Expect big band passages, a touch of New Orleans swagger, and impassioned blues riffs in this sonic odyssey.
