Appropriate for all ages in spirit and years, this special concert is the debut performance of a previously unfinished work. Composed with the concept of an “animal ballet” in mind, Wynton Marsalis’ Spaces will attempt to recapture the natural fascination we have with the sounds and movements of animals. Movement is an essential aspect of both jazz music and natural life itself, and two extraordinary dance geniuses represent this connection in their work: Lil Buck, a groundbreaking young artist recently seen with Yo-Yo Ma, Madonna, and Cirque du Soleil; and Jared Grimes, a quadruple-threat tap dancer who in 2014 won the Astaire Award and choreographed on Broadway for After Midnight and Holler If Ya Hear Me. They join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in the world-premiere of this visually captivating performance.
