Once upon a time, America was an enchanted land where million-selling hits on the pop charts were by jazz musicians. Classics like “Cherokee” and “In The Mood” are not part of a fairy tale of the past but live happily ever after with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, winner of the 2010 Thelonious Monk International Vocal Jazz Competition. If there were iPods in the 1940s instead of jukeboxes, surely among the top downloads would be “Satin Doll” and “Shiny Stockings.” Those timeless classics and others will be reinterpreted as freshly as if they were written last week.
Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm.
Free pre-concert music in the Atrium provided by Javier Nero, Friday and Saturday only.
Support for this concert generously provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and The National Endowment for the Arts.
