On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 17-19 at 8:00pm in Rose Theater, Wynton Marsalis and the LCJO will perform the music of Paul Whiteman – a bandleader who helped usher in the big band style of the Jazz Age – with three very special performances.
Special guests Bob Wilber (clarinet/soprano sax), Daryl Sherman (vocals), Vince Giordano (tuba and other instruments), James Chirillo (guitar) will join the Jazz at Lincoln Center resident orchestra to perform the groundbreaking works that Mr. Whiteman wrote for large ensemble, breaking the convention of small jazz ensembles and giving rise to “symphonic jazz.”

Tickets for The Music of Paul Whiteman, performed by the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, priced at $10, $30, $50, $70, $85, $100, $115 and $150, are available at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office, by calling CenterCharge at (212) 721-6500, or via
