Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

Saturday, July 26, 2014 - 8:00 pm

As the second son in New Orleans’ famed Marsalis family, Wynton began performing at age eight and has been hailed as “potentially the greatest trumpeter of all time.” Always swinging, Marsalis is known for his clear tone and unique, virtuosic style.

Marsalis began amassing accolades in his teens and became the first jazz musician ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 1997. His nine Grammy Awards, U.S. National Medal of Arts and Louis Armstrong Memorial Medal barely touch his extensive list of accomplishments. 

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, with Wynton Marsalis as artistic director and trumpeter, spotlights 15 of the best soloists, ensemble players and arrangers in jazz.  The musicians include members of Marsalis’ septet and surviving members of the Duke Ellington Orchestra. 

Performing music that links today’s improvisers with the rich history of traditional and contemporary big-band composition, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis brings an expansive range of music to the most treasured national and international stages.
