ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Swingin’ Live with Illinois Jacquet” brings us the final performance of this jazz giant, captured live at Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night Swing,

Illinois Jacquet performed his best at the engagement closest to his heart which now has become his farewell to the stage. For seventeen years, The Illinois Jacquet Big Band closed Lincoln Center’s popular summer dance series with a glorious night of big band swing that transported Jacquet back to his roots. Every July, in Lincoln Center’s Fountain Plaza, Jacquet recreated the excitement of the swing era--a time when big bands and dancers were united as one in the magical beat of the music.

Dubbed “The King” by Count Basie, Illinois Jacquet was still commanding the stage 60 years later with his masterful performances at Midsummer Night Swing, as Rhonda Hamilton* joyfully exclaims in her introduction. This CD offers a unique opportunity to experience Illinois Jacqut at his best in his final performance doing the thing he loved the most. It exemplifies Jacquet’s extra-ordinary capacity for love affairs with his audiences and it verifies that the King was still wearing his crown only five days before his passing.

*regrettably, the first printing of the tray card misidentifies the introduction on Disc One.
