You’re no “count.” No “duke.” You’re the King. King of the alto sax and the trumpet (and the piano, trombone and clarinet! have mercy!). King of Swing Era composers and arrangers. King of the Hollywood soundtrack, bequeathing swing unto An American in Paris, Stormy Weather and others. King of playing so much music! ”When Lights are Low,” “All of Me” that Dizzy trumpeted “when I grow up I want to be just like Benny!”
The JLCO with Wynton Marsalis escort the Kennedy Center Award and Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY – winning King Carter onto his rightful throne with this concert marking his induction into the Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame. It’ll swing with all the stomp and circumstance due jazz royalty.

Anchor and Managing Editor of “NBC Nightly News” Brian Williams will host the October 19th concert and former New York Giants running back and “Today Show” correspondent Tiki Barber will host the October 20th concert.
Special guests: Roberta Gambarini, Bob Wilber, Wycliffe Gordon
