Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 33rd concert season kicks off with a centennial celebration of the great Charlie Parker. Under the music direction of Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and special guest saxophonists Patrick Bartley, Immanuel Wilkins, and Zoe Obadia will pay a fitting tribute to the iconic pioneer of bebop.

Known for his improvisational genius, breakneck speed, and game-changing harmonic ideas, Parker left us with a whole new brand of jazz that, to this day, remains a thrilling feat to perform. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra has transformed many of his best-known pieces into virtuosic big band charts, each of them featuring extended solo sections for the band’s improvisers to let loose.
