In this much-anticipated annual tradition, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis offers swinging and soulful performances of your favorite holiday music. In addition to the classic selections heard on Blue Engine Records’ Big Band Holidays album, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will perform brand new arrangements of songs both sacred and secular, from Billie Holiday’s “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” to favorites like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” For the occasion, saxophonist Sherman Irby will serve as music director, guaranteeing a fresh and poignant experience. Irby is an extraordinary arranger and composer whose most recent commissioned work was met with a standing ovation in Rose Theater. This year’s holiday festivities are made complete with a very special guest vocalist: Catherine Russell. The next generation in a family of jazz royalty, Russell possesses a transcendent voice and uplifting spirit that have secured her spot as an audience favorite at Jazz at Lincoln Center. She will personally choose some of her favorite holiday tunes, so good cheer is sure to be shared when she joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in celebration of “the most wonderful time of the year.”
