Celebrating Duke Ellington featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
Since 1988, when Wynton Marsalis coalesced his septet with Duke Ellington alumni Jimmy Hamilton, Willie Cook, Jimmy Woode, Norris Turney, Britt Woodman, and Joe Temperley (still an active member of the JLCO and performer at this event) to form the first edition of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Ellington’s oeuvre has been fundamental to Marsalis’ mission and conception.
Continuing in this vein, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will draw from its deep well of Ellingtonia, rendering the maestro’s essence with a forceful, idiomatic clarity that reflects the JLCO’s abiding immersion in his language.
