BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 PRODID:WYNTON MARSALIS CALSCALE:GREGORIAN METHOD:PUBLISH BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Buddy Rich Centennial: Celebrating the Jazz Drum - JLCO with Wynton Marsalis in New York DESCRIPTION:Buddy Rich Centennial: Celebrating the Jazz Drum. 8:00pm - 9:30pm. Notes: Ali Jackson will invigorate the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in a virtuosic display of big band drums and rhythm. The drums are the engine of a jazz band, and this concert will showcase how expert drummers energize and uplift the audience and the entire band. To open the evening, Jackson will arrange the music of Buddy Rich, an innovative big band genius who would have turned 100 this year. Rich was a renowned musical powerhouse for most of the 20th century, influencing generations and offering a visceral excitement that few drummers could capture. Tonight, Jackson and special guest drummers will do justice to that legacy. Jackson's encyclopedic knowledge of jazz styles ranges from the earliest American drum cadences to ragtime, marching bands, West African traditions, Brazilian music, the Detroit jazz tradition, and Afro-Cuban styles. For the program's second half, audiences will witness the world-premiere of Jackson's Rhythm Concerto, an extended piece written in the innovative spirit of drum greats like Rich. It promises to showcase the juxtaposition of raw energy and refined technical skills that define the best big band drummers. The drum set will be featured not only as a driving, propulsive force, but also as a melodic solo voice in inventive and unexpected ways. Given Jackson's unparalleled knowledge of his instrument, it promises to be a unique and memorable way to celebrate this very special occasion. Free pre-concert discussion nightly, 7pm.
