Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra salute New Orleans drummer-composer James Black (1940-88), whose music Marsalis calls at once "accessible" and "complicated." Black may have been obscure nationally, but he was a jazz-club giant in the Big Easy, where he played everything from funk to ballads. Joining the LCJO for an intimate concert at Lincoln Center's Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse is Marsalis's pianist-father, Ellis, who collaborated often with Black. Indeed, Black wrote much of the senior Marsalis's acclaimed 1963 album "Monkey Puzzle." Selections from that album are performed. Ed Bradley and Beverly Sills host.
