This evening, October 25, 2004, at 7:30pm marks the only opportunity this season to experience the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton in The Allen Room.
Unfolding under the stars are Duke Ellington’s 1943 Black, Brown, & Beige, a three-movement symphony, and the most important and successful longform work in the history of jazz.
For lovers of Kansas City Swing, Wynton and the LCJO will present the recently re-discovered and highly-acclaimed 1960 Kansas City Suite, written by maestro Benny Carter for Count Basie.
