Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra,
Featuring: Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Special Guest Cécile Mclorin Salvant
Following their March 2012 sold-out performance, the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and its esteemed Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis will perform a glorious program of holiday big band favorites, with special guest vocalist CÉCILE MCLORIN SALVANT — the sensational 23-year old-Miami native who won the 2010 Thelonious Monk Competition. SALVANT’s ability to refract the styles of such iconic performers as Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Valaida Snow with 21st-century freshness, expressivity, and soulfulness gives new meaning to MARSALIS’ mantra “all jazz is modern.”
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is known for its stylistic authenticity and its stellar performances of choice instrumental arrangements from the books of such key swing era units as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey. Under the direction of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer/trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, the orchestra spends over a third of the year on tour, and can also be heard through its weekly national radio programs, global television broadcasts, and numerous recordings. 6-SHOW PACKAGE STARTS AT $160!
