The Appel Room

Michael Feinstein: Swinging with the Count

The 2017–18 Jazz & Popular Song series closes with a swinging celebration of Count Basie. Singer, historian, host, director, and all-around entertainer Michael Feinstein provides a glamorous evening of timeless vocal stylings, entertaining anecdotes, and the Tedd Firth Big Band's irresistible swing.


The Appel Room

Eddie Daniels, Harlem Quartet and Ted Nash

Jazz in the Chamber

Eddie Daniels is the preeminent jazz and classical clarinet virtuoso, described by Benny Goodman as his "successor" and by Leonard Bernstein as a "thoroughly well-bred demon" who "combines elegance with virtuosity." He'll be playing alongside composer, fellow woodwind master, and two-time 2017 Grammy Award winner Ted Nash of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Joining this formidable pair is a swinging jazz rhythm section and the Harlem Quartet. The string group will add extra color to Nash’s brand new composition and to his arrangements of pieces by Vivaldi, Bach, and Ravel.


Rose Theater

Wynton Marsalis

30th Anniversary Landmark Concert

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra presents the world premiere of Wynton Marsalis' new extended work: The Ever Fonky Lowdown. This JALC-commissioned piece is the latest entry to Marsalis' renowned canon of music exploring America's relationship to racial matters, a topic he revisits once per decade. This subject has yielded some of his best work: the 1986 Grammy Award-winning Black Codes (From the Underground), 2007's From the Plantation to the Penitentiary, and 1994's Blood on the Fields – the first jazz composition ever to win a Pulitzer Prize.
