Wynton and JLCO to play with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

For one extraordinary week only, December 17-21, 2008, Wynton and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) will join with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater for a live music celebration of America’s two great art forms – modern dance and jazz music.
Featuring two programs full of Duke Ellington’s most glorious orchestrations for dance, this special week is a highlight of Ailey’s 50th anniversary season at New York City Center, December 3 through January 4.
Both programs will also feature live music for Alvin Ailey’s masterpiece Revelations, performed by the Riverside Church Inspirational Choir and conducted by Eric Reed. More info about tickets on Alvin Ailey web site
