Wynton Marsalis will be the host of one of his popular Jazz for Young People programs, titled “Who Is Duke Ellington?” At 5, the question will be answered in music: the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra will play an all-Ellington program, as it has been doing on tour for the last few months. If you missed it at Alice Tully Hall, try not to let it pass this time. The material is particularly well chosen, and rarely does a big band sound so good these days. Ellington’s genius will only grow in your estimation upon hearing his original arrangements live. Both events tomorrow are free
