Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

Jazz
Please note: This event has already occurred.
No question about it, Wynton Marsalis is the face of the Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra. But in concert, when not serving as host or soloist, he's happy to be seated up in the brass section, amid fellow trumpeters well-versed in the rich vocabulary of traditional and contemporary jazz. From his perch, Marsalis has a terrific view of the action below - the reeds conjuring lush Ellingtonia, the trombones riffing in counterpoint, the nimbly swinging rhythm section creating moods and interludes. And if he takes special pride in the choice of tunes and the colorfully evocative arrangements, well, who can blame him. At the Filene Center.
