The Love suite: In mahogany
Roy Hargrove's “The Love Suite: In Mahogany”
For the first time, this 1993 historic concert—captured at Alice Tully Hall during one of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s earliest seasons—is available via digital streaming platforms. This album is the only recording of the full suite, Roy's original composition commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center.
