Brooks Brothers to Release Exclusive LCJO Album
Next time you go searching the used bins for that rare jazz title eluding your collection, look no further than the nearest mall. Brooks Brothers, the famous men’s clothier, has officially entered Starbucks territory, releasing its second CD in a series featuring the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra (LCJO) with Wynton Marsalis.
Fortunately, it’s available in both men’s and women’s sizes.
Cast of Cats contains twelve original tunes composed by LCJO Director Marsalis and performed in small group sessions with members of the LCJO. It was released earlier this month and is available only at Brooks Brothers locations and through their website, www.brooksbrothers.com.
According to the album liner notes, these tunes were recorded back in August 2003 and produced by Delfeayo Marsalis, Wynton’s younger brother.
Brooks Brothers clothing has been worn by Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Charlie Parker and is currently the official outfitter for Marsalis and the entire LCJO.
