The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis tours the jazz idiom as expressed across the Americas by its leading musicians and composers. Lalo Schifrin of Argentina; Hermeto Pascoal of Brazil; Canadians Oscar Peterson and Gil Evans; and Chico O’Farrill of Cuba represent some of the best examples of jazz as an international musical medium of endless exchange. The JLCO with Wynton Marsalis will perform works illuminating the appropriation of jazz by these legendary composers, inspired songs that celebrate jazz as definitively American, and demonstrate the adoption of international classics into the canon of American jazz. Among these will be Gillespiana, Schifrin’s five-movement concerto for long-time collaborator Dizzy Gillespie, and Peterson’s Canadiana Suite, a rare offering of original music that snapshots his embodiment of American traditions such as swing, blues, and gospel.
