Under Wynton Marsalis’ direction, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) performs a repertoire across the full jazz spectrum — from the music’s New Orleans roots to bebop to modern jazz. By creating and performing an expansive range of brilliant new music for quartets to big bands, chamber music ensembles to symphony orchestras, tap dance to ballet, Wynton has expanded the vocabulary for jazz and created a vital body of work that places him among the world’s finest musicians and composers. On this new tour and to celebrate Wynton’s 50th birthday, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will showcase a retrospective of Wynton’s music written for big band. The JLCO may also perform the unique repertoire for which it is renowned worldwide: modern jazz renditions of traditional favorites, including tunes by Thelonious Monk; classic Blue Note Records selections by Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Jackie McLean, Lee Morgan, and Joe Henderson; and modern compositions and arrangements by jazz contemporaries. “The audience was weak from applauding and shouting and jumping up and down with the joy of the great music it had heard.” (El Universal/The Herald)
