The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, the house orchestra of Jazz at Lincoln Center, will henceforth be known as the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. The change will help identify the band, which is led by Wynton, more closely with the organization’s “worldwide brand,”.

The group currently includes bassist Carlos Henriquez; drummer Ali Jackson; pianist Dan Nimmer; trumpeters Ryan Kisor, Sean Jones, and Marcus Printup; trombonists Chris Crenshaw, Vincent Gardner, and André Hayward; and reed players Walter Blanding, Victor Goines, Sherman Irby, Ted Nash, and Joe Temperley.

Former members include saxophonist Wes “Warmdaddy” Anderson, pianist Eric Reed, and drummer Herlin Riley.
