Salsa giant and international icon Rubén Blades joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis to wish you Feliz Navidad! Under the musical direction of JLCO bassist Carlos Henriquez, Blades and the orchestra will present a lively new take on the Grammy Award–nominated, annually sold-out Big Band Holidays program. With swinging, big-band versions of holiday classics, it’s an uplifting seasonal event perfect for the whole family.
Rubén Blades’ last appearance with the JLCO in Rose Theater was also nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award, as heard on the live Blue Engine album, Una Noche con Rubén Blades. But jazz fans know that nothing beats experiencing the music live and in-person, especially when it’s combined with holiday revelry in New York City.
Witness the reunion of this historic musical collaboration, and celebrate “the most wonderful time of the year” alongside your fellow music lovers in the House of Swing!
