Wynton Marsalis Swings and Streams Online

platform-and-stream-wynton

Catching Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is always a special treat. Or perhaps watching the acclaimed musician perform with his legendary septet in a small club is the preferred option for an evening of jazz music.

Marsalis is seemingly always on tour, bringing the swing and the soul to cities big and small around the world.

As video streaming, along with live streaming, continues to gain popularity, the globe-trotting, multi-award-winning trumpeter and composer has been ahead of the curve of streaming media, utilizing the power of the Internet and the technology of live video platform Livestream to reach a world-wide audience.

Be it performing at an intimate club like Ronnie Scott’s, or swinging ’til the midnight hour inside the beautiful Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marsalis has embraced the creative opportunities of streaming video and by doing so presented jazz fans quite a wonderful gift: the gift of access, to ‘be there’ when you really cannot ‘be there’ to enjoy the music and moment as it happens.

Powered by Livestream, there have been numerous Wynton Marsalis events that have featured mobile and connected TV applications with real-time DVR, chat, photos and other materials available to fans worldwide.

These concerts, available on the official Wynton Marsalis website, as well as a dedicated Livestream page, stream live in high-definition audio and video for free to a global audience.

“Free to a global audience…” Hard to find anything wrong in that description of what Marsalis and his jazz and tech cohorts are presenting to music fans everywhere.

The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to “entertain, enrich and expand a global community for Jazz through performance, education and advocacy.”

And what better way to promote this enthusiasm and ambition than with the power of technology, or more specifically the streaming technology that allows all this talent, all this optimism, and all this joy to be appreciated and enjoyed all around the world.

I couldn’t be in France last year for the Jazz in Marciac Festival (I know, hard to believe), but I was still able to watch the Wynton Marsalis Septet perform – thanks to Livestream’s live webcast, which looked and sounded superb.

As wonderful as actually being there? No. But not too shabby an evening of entertainment considering the comfy couch, the laptop and, of course, the music.

This is live streaming done right, the technology and the content blended like fine whiskey. Nothing to do but click and enjoy. Kudos to the Livestream team, who clearly buzzed their A Team into action for live video broadcasting projects with Wynton Marsalis.

The quality is sensational.

It was a wonderful evening of jazz – for those in southwestern France for the international jazz festival, as well as jazz lovers everywhere with a great opportunity to stream the night away with the Wynton Marsalis Septet.
