Jimmy Greene Remembers A ‘Beautiful Life’

Written by from WBGO and Jazz At Lincoln Center

Saxophonist Jimmy Greene’s newest album, Beautiful Life, is dedicated to the memory of his 6-year-old daughter. Ana Márquez-Greene was killed in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Greene paid tribute to his daughter by composing and arranging a genre-spanning album to reflect the way she lived. A portion of the proceeds of the album will go to selected charities and a scholarship in Ana’s name.

Jazz Night in America captured Greene’s quartet presenting this music live at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
