A breathtaking concert piece traversing jazz history, from spirituals to hard-bop, first performed to celebrate the bi-centenary of the Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York.

Abyssinian 200 - A Celebration (2008)


This large-scale work brings together the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with a 60-voice choir performing modernist variants of New Orleans dirges and struts, the modal excursions of hard-bop and the Ellington big-band legacies of brassy interplay, and sumptuously harmonized ballads.
