The Ever-Funky Lowdown Music By Wynton Marsalis
Thursday, June 7th, 2018
Jazz At Lincoln Center
12, 3 Columbus Cir, New York, NY 49503
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra presents a rare concert devoted entirely to Wynton Marsalis' original music. In addition to a broad selection of favorites drawn from Marsalis' legendary career, the centerpiece of the evening will be the world premiere of Marsalis' new extended work: (The Ever-Funky Lowdown). This JALC-commissioned piece is the latest entry to Marsalis' renowned canon of music exploring America's relationship to racial matters, a topic he revisits once per decade. This subject has yielded some of his best work: the 1986 Grammy Award-winning Black Codes (From the Underground), 2007's From the Plantation to the Penitentiary, and 1994's Blood on the Fields – the first jazz composition ever to win a Pulitzer Prize.
