For the second “Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Hosts” concert of the 2013-14 season, music director Wynton Marsalis and drummer Ali Jackson present the compositions of a pair of Philadelphia-born, post-Boomer virtuosos— bassist Christian McBride and guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. Rosenwinkel’s JALC debut will culminate a musical relationship that began two decades ago at Smalls in Greenwich Village, where Rosenwinkel refined his individualistic guitar sound and influential compositional concept, blending dense harmonies, gorgeous melodies, and complex forms with, as Jackson states, “a very conscious and present understanding of the blues and what the blues are in jazz music.” Himself the leader of a big band that earned a 2012 GRAMMY® Award, McBride will continue a relationship with JALC that began in 1995 (not long after he’d emerged as an all-time great on his instrument), when Marsalis, whom he met in high school during the latter ‘80s, commissioned him to write “Bluesin’ in Alphabet City.” The full Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra appears.
