Wynton Marsalis with JLCO and Ute Lemper: The Music of Kurt Weill
Featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Vibraphonist Warren Wolf,
Music Director Ted Nash
In the 110 years since his birth, Kurt Weill’s music has been played by everyone from Louis Armstrong (“Mack the Knife”) to Gil Evans (“My Ship”). Ute Lemper, “a foremost interpreter of Weill” (New York Times) along with Warren Wolf on vibes, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, and Music Director Ted Nash will show how Weill’s songs belong to the jazz world as much as to Broadway, film, and the concert hall.
Lemper says of the concert, “It’s not just a Kurt Weill recital, this one is a concert with Wynton. It’s a concert with his unbelievable big band. Fifteen musicians that take this music into a whole different universe… All that can happen is that they step slightly out of their world and I step out of my world and we’ll meet in the middle.”
