This chapter discusses the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. It includes an analysis of Wynton Marsalis's Pulitzer Prize-winning oratorio, Blood on the Fields, and the relationship of this work to his efforts to build an orchestra in the Ellington mold. The chapter addresses why he let go of his original all-star band to work with young, mostly inexperienced players from outside New York, and how Blood reflected changes in his musical thinking and his ideology.

Keywords:   Wynton Marsalis, jazz orchestra, Lincoln Center, Pulitzer Prize, oratorio, Blood on Fields, Ellington
