Family Concert: Who is Joe Williams?

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra celebrates the life and music of baritone vocalist Joe Williams, whose legendary voice and powerful sense of swing helped define the sound of the Count Basie Orchestra. Williams "gave the blues a new dimension," as Duke Ellington famously wrote, and special guest vocalist Milton Suggs, a rising star baritone from Chicago, will join the JLCO to teach families all about Williams' unique mastery. With an engaging story, jaw-dropping talent, and chart-topping tunes like "Every Day (I Have the Blues)," this Family Concert will help you stomp the blues away with an hour of pure entertainment. Our Family Concerts are always a good time, and this fun afternoon program will entertain and inspire your family—whether you're already jazz lovers or perhaps simply wondering, "Who is Joe Williams?"

Recommended for ages 5-12 however, children of all ages are welcome.
