Led by nine-time Grammy-winner Wynton Marsalis, the inimitable Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra returns to Esplanade for two sublime evenings of great jazz.
Made up of 15 of the finest soloists, ensemble players and arrangers in jazz music today, the versatile orchestra’s singular takes on jazz classics have been heard and enjoyed by jazz fans in over 300 cities across six continents.
The first-ever jazz artist to receive the Pulitzer Prize in music, the legendary trumpeter Wynton Marsalis is also the first and only artist to win both the classical and jazz Grammys in the same year—a feat he achieved again the following year. Currently the managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marsalis has more than 70 classical and jazz recordings to his name.
Don’t miss this chance to catch “the finest big band in the world today” (The Daily Telegraph) as they perform two different repertoires over two concerts celebrating the best in American jazz history.
