"All Songs Considered for the Holidays" – A holiday tradition has begun.

"In This House, On This Morning" – Welcome the holidays with Wynton Marsalis' first commissioned work that takes the form of a church service, packing brimstone, fire and a Sweet Embrace in the hands of drummer Herlin Riley, Saxophonists Wess "Warmdaddy" Anderson and Todd Williams, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon and "Swing Doom" – the bassist Reginald Veal. With Marsalis on trumpet they give old Joshua some stiff competition on Call To Prayer, In This House, Alter Call, and more. Wednesday, Dec. 16, 7-8 p.m.
