For five nights, from May 27 to 31 at Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, Jazz at Lincoln Center will celebrate the music of James Black (1940-1988), the trailblazin drummer and composer, whose music remains largely unknown outside of his native New Orleans.
Wynton and his father, pianist Ellis Marsalis will join other Native New Orleanians: Victor Goines, (tenor saxophone and clarinet), Reginald Veal (bass), and Herlin Riley (drums) for five nights of Black’s music which will help to close out J@LC’s “Year of the Drum” celebration.

The program will include Black’s Magnolia Triangle, Whistle Stop, Monkey Puzzle, Old Wyne, Lil’ Boy Man, and Dee Wee, along with Sister Wilson, Blues Bag, A Love Song, and New Arrival.
The concert on Thursday, May 29, 2003 at 8pm will be carried live on PBS stations around the country on the popular program Live From Lincoln Center.
