Big Band B-3: Joey DeFrancesco with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

Joey DeFrancesco—arguably the greatest jazz organist alive—joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra for the first time. The expansive Hammond organ is rarely paired with a big band, but it adds a soulful new dimension when the musicians are up to the challenge. DeFrancesco and the JLCO will explore and expand upon two prime examples: Duke Ellington’s New Orleans Suite and Oliver Nelson’s unique take on Peter & The Wolf.

Danny Barker: A New Orleans Life in Jazz

“He made us believe in the music,” says Wynton Marsalis. Jazz raconteur Danny Barker spent most of his career here in New York, but when he finally returned home to New Orleans as a local legend, he gave the world a gift that you will see on stage tonight. The youth band that Barker founded nurtured a new generation of jazz leaders, and a group of those musicians now reunites in The Appel Room as a tribute to their mentor. The band includes music director and clarinetist Dr. Michael White, vocalist Catherine Russell, trombonist Lucien Barbarin, trumpeters Gregg Staffordand Leroy Jones, pianist Sullivan Fortner, bassist/tuba player Philip Norris, drummers Shannon Powell and Herlin Riley, and guitarist/banjoist Don Vappie in the role of Danny Barker. Enjoy authentic New Orleans jazz at its finest.
