Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

When: Fri., Aug. 28 2015

London’s Daily Telegraph proclaims that the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, a group featuring 15 of jazz music’s leading soloists, is “the finest big band in the world today.” Nine-time Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Wynton Marsalis leads them tonight in selections drawn from a repertoire that includes original compositions by Marsalis, Ted Nash and other members of the orchestra, as well as classics by Ellington, Mingus, Coltrane and other jazz greats. The concert begins at 8 p.m. at Severance Hall. Tomorrow night at 8, Marsalis and Co. join the Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom for the Swing Symphony, an homage to jazz and pop styles of ragtime, mambo, bebop, and church music. Tickets to the Severance Hall show start at $32 and tickets to Blossom start at $29. (Niesel)
