Hailed as "an extraordinarily versatile orchestra" by The Los Angeles Times, the JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER ORCHESTRA is composed of 15 of jazz music's leading soloists under the leadership of musical director Wynton Marsalis. Drawing from an extensive repertoire that includes original compositions by Mr. Marsalis, Ted Nash, and other members of the orchestra, as well as the masterworks of Ellington, Mingus, Coltrane, and other great jazz composers, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis concerts are internationally critically-acclaimed. "The finest big band in the world today," said the Daily Telegraph, UK.
This historic event features the entire Marsalis family - Ellis Jr. and sons Branford, Wynton, Delfeayo, and Jason - whose story is both inspiring and significant in jazz history. The Marsalis family, together and individually, have made significant contributions to the preservation of jazz, the expansion of the art form, and the education of students of jazz.
