This Jazz at Lincoln Center-commissioned piece is the latest entry in Marsalis’ renowned canon of music exploring America’s relationship to racial matters, a topic he revisits once per decade. This subject has yielded some of his best work: the 1986 Grammy Award–winning Black Codes (From the Underground), 2007’s From the Plantation to the Penitentiary, and 1994’s Blood on the Fields—the first jazz composition ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. … Composed specifically for the JLCO’s current lineup, The Ever Fonky Lowdown will masterfully utilize the group’s virtuosic soloists, stylistic versatility, and unparalleled ensemble cohesion.
