Classic Arts News   Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra Moves to Palmetto Records
The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra has left Sony/Columbia, its longtime record company, for the independent label Palmetto Records.

The first Palmetto CD for the LCJO and artistic director Wynton Marsalis will be a recording of John Coltrane's composition A Love Supreme, to be released on January 11, 2005.

The LCJO, the in-house orchestra of Jazz at Lincoln Center, recorded eight albums for Sony's Columbia Jazz label between 1992 and 1999. The group's last recording, of Marsalis's composition All Rise, was issued on the Sony Classical label in 2002.

Palmetto Records was founded in 1990 and is best known as the home of such adventurous musicians as bassist Ben Allison, saxophonist Marty Erlich, and pianist Andrew Hill. Saxophonist Ted Nash, a member of the LCJO, has recorded for Palmetto with Allison and in his own group.
