Big Band Holidays
Dec 12 - Dec 14, 2013
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performs choice instrumental arrangements from the books of such key Swing Era titans as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman, and Tommy Dorsey. Joining the JLCO is the sensational 23-year-old 2010 Thelonious Monk Competition winning vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, whose ability to refract the styles of such iconic performers of that era 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."
