“How do 15 strong-willed musicians come together in perfect harmony? How does the standard become fresh again? … Thank the arranger, the unsung hero who musically choreographs every show, bringing order and imagination to the bandstand.”

On December 2, at 12pm and 2pm, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in the “Jazz for young people” concert series, explore the techniques arrangers use to help everyone get along and sound good, good, good.
