With a Pulitzer, nine Grammys, and a National Medal of Arts to his name, Wynton Marsalis is unquestionably jazz’s preeminent ambassador. Marsalis’ role as managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and his first-rate work as leader of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet cements his reputation. Featuring the best of the best, with each member a true leader on their instrument, the septet navigates demanding pieces with deceptive ease, leaving room for expressive, subtle detail and off-the-cuff discourse. The group’s repertoire includes originals from Marsalis and his bandmates as well as expertly selected standards from throughout jazz history, touching on everything from straight jazz to blues to bop to Dixieland and beyond.

The six talented and witty musicians that make up The Queen’s Cartoonists are extraordinarily well-versed in the ins and outs of cartoon music-from the zany swing of classic Saturday morning cartoon anarchy (Bugs Bunny and his Warner Bros. cohort, especially) to the sweep of bygone Disney to contemporary small-screen favorites like The Simpsons. Gleefully zipping through works by Raymond Scott, Carl Stalling, Danny Elfman, Alf Clausen, John Williams, and more, The Queen’s Cartoonists are somehow able to locate oodles of fresh humor and energy and grandeur in tunes you’ve heard countless times from modest TV speakers. Add in some off-beat selections (Bambi Meets Godzilla, anyone?), and you have something really special.
