In a unique and historic collaboration, iconic rock trio Crosby, Stills & Nash and the world renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will perform together for the first time in Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in two concert events entitled “The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook.” The premiere on May 1, 2013 will be Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2013 Gala Concert followed by a public concert on May 3, 2013.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2013 Annual Gala Concert will honor famed New York Interior Designer and JALC Board Member Mica Ertegun and bestow upon her the organization’s Ed Bradley Award for Leadership in Jazz.

“The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook“will feature Crosby, Stills & Nash’s classic songs – music that has become a cornerstone of rock and roll – arranged by Marsalis and members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

“Jazz at Lincoln Center is honored that Crosby, Stills and Nash are donating their time and talent to perform at this year’s annual gala,” said Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Managing and Artistic Director. “Individually and collectively, David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash are influential and important figures in American music. Their music is rooted in American folk, pop and blues traditions and their experiments with form, harmony and orchestration will make for a natural collaboration.”

“Wynton Marsalis, who has become America’s musical hero and ambassador to the world in the tradition of the great Louis Armstrong, has offered us the chance to make music with the Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra,” said David Crosby. “These are musicians who have spent their whole lives becoming the very best in the world at what they do. We are are excited and fascinated with this merging of musical streams and looking forward to a night to remember.”

The Jazz at Lincoln Center gala dinner décor will be designed by David Beahm, and dinner will be served by Great Performances, the exclusive in-house caterer for Jazz at Lincoln Center.
