The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis celebrates one of jazz’s great original geniuses: composer, Pulitzer Prize winner, and alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman (1930–2015). One of the all-time best melodists – regardless of musical tradition – this groundbreaking visionary left us with a profound body of work that demands ongoing exploration. With virtuosic big band arrangements of seminal works like “Una Muy Bonita,” “Lonely Woman,” and “Peace,” the Orchestra will foray deep into Coleman’s incomparable musical world. 2017 Grammy Award-winning composer, arranger, saxophonist, and bandleader Ted Nash serves as music director for the evening, utilizing the orchestra’s many colors to bring this music to life. When we last presented Ornette Coleman, he was amazed by the JLCO’s playing. Tonight, the band will revel in this most sophisticated and universally-beloved music, using Coleman’s singular melodies and rich thematic material as a foundation for spellbinding new interpretations.
