The spirit of the winter holiday season has always been best captured by the music that this joyous time inspires. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and special guest vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant celebrate “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” with Big Band Holidays, a jazzy celebration now in its fourth year. The JLCO will explore the canon of holiday standards with signature arrangements of Yuletide favorites, with Sherman Irby’s clear sense of swing, Victor Goines’ New Orleans-flavored nuances, Chris Crenshaw’s deeply soulful and complex church-rooted grooves, and many more. Augmenting this special event is 2010 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition winner and Mack Avenue recording artist Cécile McLorin Salvant, who is one of the most commanding new voices in jazz. Big Band Holidays kicks off the season with messages of peace and good cheer.
