The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and a roster of special guest vocalists will perform songs by some of the most powerful singers and songwriters of the 20th century. Under the music direction of JLCO trombonist and vocalist Chris Crenshaw, this brand-new program looks back at four great singers whose unapologetically honest art has stood the test of time in its meaning and musicality.

A group of vocalists adept in jazz, blues, folk, and beyond, including Melanie Charles, Shenel Johns, and Ashley Pezzotti, will lend their unique voices to impassioned new big band charts arranged by Chris Crenshaw and members of the JLCO. The repertoire will span decades of songs written and made famous by Betty Carter, Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, and Nina Simone.
