Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
Presented by the Chan Centre in association with the Coastal Jazz and Blues Society
New York’s best visit the West.
In 1987, world renowned trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis co-founded a program at Lincoln Center, which would grow into a cornerstone of the international jazz community and produce the spectacular Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO). Under Marsalis’ direction, the JLCO will perform repertoire across the full jazz spectrum: modern renditions of traditional favorites including tunes by Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Jackie McLean, Lee Morgan, and an array of compositions and arrangements by jazz contemporaries including members of the JLCO.
Hailed as “the finest big band in the world today” by the Daily Telegraph, the Orchestra’s lush, polished tone will transport audiences and set feet tapping with brassy, swinging sound.
