“The finest big band in the world today.” – The Daily Telegraph, UK
Founded by trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra has been going strong for 25 years. The original line-up consisted of Wynton’s septet and former members of the Duke Ellington Orchestra, and now features fifteen of the best all-around musicians in jazz today. Marsalis, the first jazz composer to receive a Pulitzer Prize (for Blood on the Fields), conceived the idea of preserving and advancing America’s art form through the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra’s performances. For this concert, the JLCO celebrates the music of three respected composers whose innovative works have stood the test of time: Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, and Chick Corea.
