BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 PRODID:WYNTON MARSALIS CALSCALE:GREGORIAN METHOD:PUBLISH BEGIN:VEVENT SUMMARY:Musings of Cosmic Stuff - JLCO with Wynton Marsalis in New York DESCRIPTION:Musings of Cosmic Stuff. 8:00pm. Notes: JLCO saxophonist Sherman Irby leads a gravity-defying exploration of the universe with the world premiere of his new commission, Musings of Cosmic Stuff . After kicking off the suite with the Big Bang, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will travel through a series of distinctive movements, evoking awe-inspiring galactic phenomena from supernovas, stars, and black holes to the formation of a galaxy and life itself. William Shatner (Star Trek’s Captain Kirk) will introduce each section (April 25 only), shedding light upon a subject before it comes to life as music. Irby’s previous commissions for the JLCO include Twilight Sounds, inspired by a Norman Lewis painting, and Inferno, a jazz ballet inspired by Dante’s Inferno, and he’s a perfect fit in this season of grand ideas transforming into live music. Even beyond the JLCO, Irby is an acclaimed composer, bandleader, educator, and one of the most formidable saxophonists around, and it’s a thrill when he dedicates his writing talents to the JLCO.
