New York, NY (May 26, 2023) – Today, Blue Engine Records releases The Jungle, the fourth symphony by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and Jazz at Lincoln Center Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis, on all major streaming platforms.

Featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) with Wynton Marsalis alongside the internationally recognized Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) conducted by Nicholas Buc, The Jungle was recorded live in Hamer Hall in Melbourne, Australia in 2019.

The Jungle will be part of the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis’s repertoire throughout the world renowned big band’s 2023 European Tour (June 7-July 9). This international tour includes 23 shows, 16 cities and 8 countries. For The Jungle performances, please see the schedule below.

“New York City is the most fluid, pressure-packed, and cosmopolitan metropolis the modern world has ever seen,” says Wynton Marsalis. No wonder, then, that the city inspired the composer’s fourth symphony, The Jungle. Captured live in 2019, Marsalis’s masterwork highlights the paradoxes that define New York City, where wealth and poverty, grit and romance, and unlimited growth and stagnation all coexist. But it’s also a meditation on what being human means today—a widescale attempt to understand the maelstrom of modern life and remind us what brings us together.

The JLCO with Wynton Marsalis will reunite with MSO for the first time since 2019 for performances of Wynton Marsalis’s All Rise in Australia on August 25-26 2023 in Hamer Hall.
