Notes

Since 1988, when Wynton Marsalis coalesced his septet with Duke Ellington alumni Jimmy Hamilton, Willie Cook, Jimmy Woode, Norris Turney, Britt Woodman, and Joe Temperley (still an active member of the JLCO) to form the first edition of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Ellington’s oeuvre has been fundamental to JALC’s mission and conception. Continuing in this vein, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will draw from its deep well of Ellingtonia, rendering the maestro’s essence and his centrality to American music with a forceful, idiomatic clarity that reflects the JLCO’s abiding immersion in his language.

Free pre-concert festival, April 25 at 6:30pm.

Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm.
