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. Composed specifically for the JLCO's current lineup, (The Ever-Funky Lowdown) will masterfully utilize the group's virtuosic soloists, stylistic versatility, and unparalleled ensemble cohesion. It will also serve as a sophisticated musical platform for Marsalis to convey his hopes, concerns, and historically-informed insights about our culture and society. On this momentous final weekend of our 30th concert season, we're proud to pair this timely new commission with other treasured works by our Artistic Director. Join our family! Our members and subscribers gain early access to concerts such as this one. Membership starts at $75 and offers benefits, invitations and more throughout the season.
