Our season-opening concert features the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and some of today’s top pianists, including our own Dan Nimmer. Performing definitive compositions by piano geniuses like Jelly Roll Morton, Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk, Dave Brubeck, and Marcus Roberts, tonight’s special guests will showcase an astonishing evolution of jazz piano that now spans over 100 years. Guest musicians range in age from 13-year-old prodigy Joey Alexander (recently featured on 60 Minutes) to 89-year-old American treasure Dick Hyman, met in the middle by pianist/composer Helen Sung, Aaron Diehl and Isaiah J. Thompson. Alongside the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, their virtuosic performances will allow the living continuum of jazz to unfold before your eyes in the House of Swing.
