Decked out in charcoal suits, blue dress shirts and ties coordinated by section, Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra gave the Sunday Paramount Theatre crowd a chatty jazz history lesson, starting with what might have been the music of legendary (but never recorded) New Orleans cornetist Buddy Bolden and ending with bristling arrangements by Marsalis himself of pieces by ‘60s innovator John Coltrane.

The Paramount Theatre crowd was rowdy and Neko Case was in a playful, somewhat vulgar mood Wednesday night despite battling a head cold.

“We are going to play a lot of f—ing songs,” she announced with a laugh about a third of the way through her 21-song set as she took a glance down at the set list.

Not only did Case play plenty of songs off her new album “The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You,” she also touched on old favorites that got the crowd cheering their approval.
