Duke Ellington may have coined the phrase, "It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing," but no one’s taken it to heart like New Orleans trumpeter and bandleader Wynton Marsalis. It’s the guiding principle behind the success of his exceptionally talented Orchestra, now celebrating its 25th anniversary with this tour. Expect classic Blue Note Records selections and tunes associated with John Coltrane, Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis, and Ellington, but no matter the repertoire, it’ll swing. – Jay Trachtenberg
