Regular price $16.98 Sale



From bebop to bolero and beyond, LIVE IN CUBA captures nine-time Grammy Award-winning Wynton Marsalis and the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis's first—and only—performances in Cuba. Explore the profound connections between American jazz and Afro-Cuban music on this two-CD set, the debut release from Blue Engine Records, a new label dedicated to preserving, promoting and pushing forward jazz.

Recorded in front of clamorous, sold-out crowds over three nights at Havana's Mella Theatre in October 2010, LIVE IN CUBA finds the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performing Ellington standards, Afro-Cuban numbers, and distinctly modern compositions from band members. LIVE IN CUBA is the orchestra’s first album in five years and a document of two nations’ indelible cultural connections and of an emotional reunion between long-lost musical cousins.

Every purchase of this album includes a digital download that will be emailed to you.
