This is great. Wynton Marsalis and Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra: "Portrait in Seven Shades."

One of their members wrote jazz compositions based on the artwork of famous painters,and the LCJO worked them up.

Just came out this week. It's killer. It's arty, yet swings. You can focus on it, or just listen as background jazz. The Picasso tune is, well, Picasso-sounding.

LCOJ always delivers.


Check out this guy playing the Who's "Baba O Reilly" on acoustic, doing all the parts.
