December 1-2, Rose Theater


New York, NY (October 19, 2017) – Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 30th anniversary celebratory events include an exploration of the blues led by authorities on the blues tradition. Renowned blues-rock guitarist, singer/songwriter, and 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller, legendary blues guitarist and Texas legend Jimmie Vaughan, and harmonica virtuoso Charlie Musselwhite will return to Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater for the special concert events, The Blues Triangle: Memphis, Texas, Chicago, on December 1-2, 2017 at 8pm.  

B3 organist Mike Flanigin, pianist Shelly Berg and other guests to be announced will join this super group to take audiences through a concert program inspired by Miller’s own musical journey. Having learned his first chords at age five from his godfather Les Paul, followed by playing lead guitar from T-Bone Walker at age nine, and then working with the best bluesmen in Chicago – Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy, James Cotton and Paul Butterfield – Miller has a serious affinity for the blues. In The Blues Triangle: Memphis, Texas, Chicago, he and the group assembled for these concerts will explore music from the three essential blues hubs.

Ticket holders are welcome to attend free pre-concert discussions at 7pm.

Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall is located at Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit jazz.org.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2017–18 season celebrates the organization’s 30th anniversary. Since the first downbeat of its summer concert series in 1987, Jazz at Lincoln Center has been a vital part of the global cultural landscape. Jazz at Lincoln Center was established as an independent non-profit organization in 1996; opened Frederick P. Rose Hall, the “House of Swing”, in 2004, making it the world’s first venue designed specifically for jazz; and launched Blue Engine Records in 2014 to share its vast archive of recordings. Over the past three decades, Jazz at Lincoln Center has become an important advocate for jazz, culture, and arts education globally, reaching an audience of nearly 2 million people of all ages and experiences through concerts, webcasting, musical instruction, and distribution of music scores—the vast majority of which is free of charge. To date, Jazz at Lincoln Center has produced more than 1,200 original concerts in the New York City area, with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra having performed in over 446 cities in 41 countries on five continents. This milestone season reflects on 30 years of celebrating the universal language of music and the influence of jazz in the present day. Throughout the 2017–18 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center will bring together a wide array of events, projects, virtuoso musicians, composers, and educators to illustrate the collaborative nature of the art form. Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2017–18 season features performances by renowned artists including Joey Alexander, Chick Corea, Paquito D’Rivera, Eliane Elias, Ellis Marsalis, Dick Hyman, Marilyn Maye, Steve Miller, and Dianne Reeves; as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center debuts by the Harlem Quartet and vocalist and songwriter Somi.
