Jazz at Lincoln Center presents concerts that can be heard nowhere else. From the Allen Room, Rose Hall, and the Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center, all created specifically for jazz, and from Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, this Peabody Award-winning program brings us thematic programs with the world’s great performers. A number of times each year, these programs feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by the Center’s Artistic Director, Wynton Marsalis.

This week on Jazz At Lincoln Center
Postwar America saw the hard edges of bebop segue to the cool. The music bewitched baritone sax man Gerry Mulligan, and it enchanted classically-trained pianist John Lewis; both became pioneers of this sophisticated style. Pianist Jonathan Batiste and baritone saxophone master Joe Temperly join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra to make the cool all new. The set includes Django, Delauney’s Dilemma, and Animal Dance.
