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