Accompanied by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the trumpeter offers a program of holiday favorites.

Last month, the distinguished trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and his quintet (with a lift from his daughter) ushered in the Christmas spirit with a swinging recording of “Winter Wonderland.” Now Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, along with the promising vocalists Vuyo Sotashe and Veronica Swift, offer “Big Band Holidays,” a program brimming with seasonal confections, both classic and reimagined. The series arrives on Dec. 19, with dollops of carefree nostalgia and abundant cheer, like all good traditions.
