Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 34th season runs through June 11, 2022. In addition to live concerts throughout Frederick P. Rose Hall, the organization offers webcast performances, in-person and virtual education programs, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis tour dates worldwide, and the release of new Blue Engine Records titles. Concerts during this monumental season re-affirm the art of swing, the engine of musical freedom in jazz. Season concerts honor some of the luminaries of jazz composition rooted in swing—Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, Dave Brubeck, Wayne Shorter, and Jelly Roll Morton—while debuting new works by Cécile McLorin Salvant and Wynton Marsalis.
