Journey Through Jazz: Part II - Featuring The Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis In The Appel Room
The second season of Wynton Marsalis’s interactive and educational series
New York, NY (October 20, 2022) – Jazz at Lincoln Center presents the second season of its Journey Through Jazz Series, which addresses the fundamentals of jazz, folk, blues, and swing, created and hosted by Wynton Marsalis. An interactive, educational, and family-friendly experience, Marsalis guides audiences through the evolution of jazz and the blues in America with his own wisdom and humor, paired with music from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO).
Journey Through Jazz Part II, on November 17-19 at 7:00pm & 9:30pm ET, takes place in the Appel Room at Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located at Broadway at 60th Street in New York, New York. Live webcast on jazzlive.com
Throughout the series, the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis focuses on and illuminates a theme with musical examples. The two 2022-23 concerts address the theme of community from different angles. The first concert explores what attributes allow jazz, America’s indigenous music, to intersect so fluently and create communal bonds with various musical forms and cultures, empowering those who fully engage with it. Audiences will also gain a deeper understanding of jazz and music legends such as Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and Leonard Bernstein to Wayne Shorter and Jelly Roll Morton. The second, Jazz Chronicles: Old and New (February 16–18, 2023), traces the oral tradition of jazz, the stories that give the community of practitioners living in the here-and-now, agency over the narrative of the music’s development and traditions.
