Jazz at Lincoln Center proudly announces the release of Portrait in Seven Shades, performed by the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and composed by JLCO reedman Ted Nash. Nash’s suite consists of seven movements, each inspired by a master of modern art who worked in the century around the apex of jazz: Chagall, Dali, Matisse, Monet, Picasso, Pollock and Van Gogh. The recording also features special guest musicians Nathalie Bonin (violin), Wycliffe Gordon (tuba), and Bill Schimmel (accordion). The writer Will Friedwald said ‘Music is like painting in time, painting is like music in space.’ Portrait in Seven Shades illustrates this point masterfully.
