Rose Theater 2019-2020 season

Masters of Form

From Mingus to Monk

What to Expect

  • Classics from Jelly Roll Morton, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, and George Russell.
  • A musical mashup of jazz and architecture. 
  • A new work by one of today’s finest big band composers and arrangers, Andy Farber, whose credits include work with the JLCO, Shirley Horn, B.B. King, Jon Hendricks, Vanessa Williams, and more.

Can a great composition be compared to the work of a great architect? The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis invites you to experience the music of Jelly Roll Morton, Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, and George Russell from a new angle.

With music direction by JLCO trombonist Vincent Gardner, the band will start the show by playing some of the most masterfully structured pieces in the jazz canon. They will emphasize the brilliant layering and attention to form that allowed these composers to construct such distinctly expressive and enduring music.

The second half of the show will expand upon this concept with the world premiere of Usonian Structures, a new suite created by Andy Farber, one of today’s finest big band composers and arrangers. The piece was inspired by the work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and each movement is an interpretation or impression of one of Wright’s iconic designs.
