The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Songbook
Friday, October 20th, 2017
Continuing Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 30th anniversary celebration, this special evening is dedicated to the brilliant composers of New York City’s house band: the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. The JLCO has put forth a vast, innovative body of original work over the past decade, and for two nights in Rose Theater they will treat audiences to a collection of their best compositions. Featuring current JLCO members like Victor Goines, Ted Nash, Chris Crenshaw, Carlos Henriquez, Sherman Irby, Marcus Printup, Vincent Gardner, Walter Blanding, and Wynton Marsalis, the JLCO songbook includes some of the finest and most stylistically diverse big band music in history. Such variety and uniformly high quality is a rare achievement for any band, but no other group has ever had 11 composers and arrangers of this level in its ranks. The JLCO composers’ thematic ambitions, distinctive musical personalities, and unprecedented range make their repertoire a particularly potent demonstration of big band jazz’s limitless potential. Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm. This concert has been chosen as one of our 30th anniversary landmark performances because of the remarkable compositional abilities of many of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s current and past members. Since 1992, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra has been our institution’s flagship ensemble, representing Jazz at Lincoln Center across the globe. Recognized as one of the preeminent jazz ensembles in existence, this two-night only performance is an opportunity to celebrate the writing and arranging that have shaped the band. Join our family!
