Everyone Has a Place

About This Episode


Everyone Has a Place is a musical documentary featuring a ground-breaking collaboration of jazz, gospel and vocals. This body of work entitled, "Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration" was composed by the American musical treasure Wynton Marsalis, and performed by a unique pairing of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and choir Chorale Le Chateau. The work toured to 17 U.S. cities with a full complement of 70 choral singers and the entire 15 member Jazz at Lincoln Center orchestra led by conductor Damien Sneed.

The film, which features a series of in-depth interviews, moving concert footage and a candid peek backstage, is a toe-tapping, hand-clapping musical tapestry that will entertain, uplift and inspire.
