Chances are you know the music of Billy Strayhorn better than his name. Working both as Duke Ellington's key collaborator and in his own right, Strayhorn was one of the all-time heavyweight composers. He was jazz's leading romantic, as shown in the tender and sensual "Lush Life" and "Lotus Blossom;" and with "Take the A Train" and "Johnny Come Lately" he wrote some of the hardest-swinging tunes of all time. Your ears will thank you for the rare opportunity to hear Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra play this distinctively gorgeous music. Featuring guest vocalist José James.
