Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra: Congo Square based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
It took two great and unique musicians - the African drummer Yacub Addy and Wynton Marsalis - to blend Ghanaian percussion and songs with jazz forms on this level. The result is amazing. This is a culturally historic masterwork, but it's also some of the most dynamic and hot music you've ever heard - it lifts the spirit and moves the body. Each of the musicians of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Yacub Addy's ensemble Odadaa! have made a great effort and the love shows. This concert was the opening event of the 2007 Montreal Jazz Festival, and comes at the end of the second national tour of the music. The music naturally evolved over this time and the result is a performance unique from the CD recorded at the end of the first tour.
