Vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, who Ebony.com called one of “7 Young Players To Watch,” will be featured on soulful renditions of the season’s most festive songs.

The Big Band Holidays Tour will return to Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City on December 12, 13 and 14 at 8pmET, with a matinee on December 14 at 2pmET. These concerts will be available worldwide via free live webcast on wyntonmarsalis.org/live.
