On this digital album, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s fresh arrangements of classic SesameStreet songs reveal the timeless appeal of the program’s repertoire. Recorded in front of a sold-out audience at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, the
concert assembles a star-studded lineup of SesameStreetcharacters —including Elmo, Abby, Big Bird, Bert & Ernie, and many more—to perform beloved tunes like “Rubber Duckie,” “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon,” and “Elmo’s Song.”
No one is too young or too old to enjoy this hilarious, soulful, and joyous music—so be a part of our neighborhood and celebrate five decades of Sesame Street in swingin’ style.
About Jazz at Lincoln Center
The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to entertain, enrich, and expand a global community for jazz through performance, education, and advocacy. We believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression. Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
