Celebrating Ornette Coleman

Rose Theater • 8:00PM

Fri, May 18 • Sat, May 19

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis celebrates one of jazz's great original geniuses: composer, Pulitzer Prize winner, and alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman (1930–2015). One of the all-time best melodists – regardless of musical tradition – this groundbreaking visionary left us with a profound body of work that demands ongoing exploration. With virtuosic big band arrangements of seminal works like "Una Muy Bonita," "Lonely Woman," and "Peace," the Orchestra will foray deep into Coleman's incomparable musical world.
