|Ensemble||Wynton Marsalis with JLCO – Duke, Dizzy, Trane, & Mingus: Jazz Titans|
|Date||Thursday, January 29th, 2015 – Saturday, January 31st, 2015|
|Address||Broadway at 60th Street|
|Location||New York, NY, United States|
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis present music of the Americas through the lens of four pioneering giants of jazz. Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, and Charles Mingus singularly pursued ancestral music, particularly from Africa and Latin America, and used their discoveries to broaden the horizons of their artistry and create new terrain for jazz. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will play selections from Ellington’s Latin American Suite and Virgin Islands Suite; Coltrane’s Olé Coltrane and Africa Brass; Mingus’ Tijuana Moods; and various pieces from Gillespie’s early Afro-Cuban era through his later work with the United Nations band, showing his evolution from Afro-Cuban to a more expansive Afro-Latin idiom. The JLCO with Wynton Marsalis will illuminate the historically important rhythmic distinctions, chant-based melodies, and modal soundscapes created as a result of these albums that forever changed the conception of the boundaries of jazz.
