Continuing our high-demand annual tradition, Wynton Marsalis rings in the New Year at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, this year with an all-star quintet of Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra members. Led by nine-time GRAMMY® Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Wynton Marsalis, the group’s repertoire includes originals from Marsalis and his band mates, as well as a diverse selection of favorites from throughout jazz history. With an array of straight jazz, blues, bop, New Orleans music, and Marsalis’ own extended compositions, music fans will find a lot to dig into during these sets.

A shining example of polish and discipline, the group navigates these demanding pieces with deceptive ease, leaving room for expressive, subtle detail and off-the-cuff interaction. Most excitingly, every player gets plenty of time to solo – and these soloists are endlessly resourceful, all recognized leaders of their craft. Also featured is special guest dancer Jared Grimes, the 2014 Astaire Award winner recently seen on Broadway in After Midnight, and vocalist Kate Davis, who just won the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition Rising Star Award.
