BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 PRODID:WYNTON MARSALIS CALSCALE:GREGORIAN METHOD:PUBLISH BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Spaces by Wynton Marsalis - JLCO with Wynton Marsalis in Monterey DESCRIPTION:Spaces by Wynton Marsalis. 8:00pm. Notes: If there is one thing these vanguards—Wynton Marsalis (musician), Charles “Lil Buck” Riley (jookin), and Jared Grimes (tap and hip-hop/street dance)—have in common, it is improvisation; their instinctual understanding is proof. Jookin originated on the streets of Memphis; tap hails from a blend of African rhythms and Irish clog dance in lower Manhattan; hip-hop grew from the complex blend of MCing, DJing, graffiti, and breakdancing in the Bronx; and jazz was born deep in New Orleans. Jazz, tap, and the many shades of street dance are American- born art forms, central to the theme for this season at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Because the deep-seated history of improvisation grounds all three, there is no doubt that it will have a place in Marsalis’ new work, Spaces. Marsalis began work on Spaces before pulling Riley and Grimes into the mix, knowing that they would help to “…convey how essential movement is to jazz, and how it reflects a natural expression of life itself.” Riley and Grimes joined without hesitation. Marsalis’ self-described “animal ballet” promises to capture “…the natural fascination we have with the sounds and movements of animals” vis-à-vis their brand of music and movement-inventiveness inspired by the way animals move.
