Eddie Daniels, Harlem String Quartet and Ted Nash Premiere New Works in Jazz in Chamber, June 1-2, in The Appel Room

New York, NY (April 30, 2018) –  Eddie Daniels, Harlem String Quartet and Ted Nash: Jazz in the Chamber, the final Appel Room performance of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 30th anniversary season, reveals  the respective influence jazz and classical have had on each other throughout history, and demonstrates the virtuosity of jazz.

Jazz and classical clarinet virtuoso Eddie Daniels and two-time 2017 Grammy Award winner Ted Nash of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will premiere new compositions and inventive versions of works by Vivaldi, Bach, and Ravel. For two nights only, June 1–2 at 7pm and 9:30pm , Daniels and Nash will be joined by the Grammy Award-winning Harlem Quartet - in its Jazz at Lincoln Center debut - with an all-star rhythm section featuring  pianist Helen Sung, bassist Scott Colley, and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli.

“I am so excited about this opportunity to play with and write music for Eddie and the other killing musicians for the final concerts of the season in the Appel Room,” says Ted Nash. “With the exception of one piece from Eddie’s new release, Sound of Brazil (for which I wrote several arrangements) this will be all new material. Our desire is to incorporate the sound of modern jazz into the environment of intimate chamber music, keeping it all exciting, swinging, beautiful and challenging. The Harlem Quartet is one of the greatest string quartets I have ever heard. They can play anything. And Eddie and I are going to make sure they do!”

A free pre-concert discussion will take place at 6pm and 8:30pm each night in the Agnes Varis and Karl Leichtman Studio, located in the Irene Diamond Education Center at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Eddie Daniels, Harlem Quartet and Ted Nash: Jazz in the Chamber will take place in The Appel Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Frederick P. Rose Hall, located at Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit jazz.org.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2017–18 season celebrates the organization’s 30th anniversary. Since the first downbeat of its summer concert series in 1987, Jazz at Lincoln Center has been a vital part of the global cultural landscape. Jazz at Lincoln Center was established as an independent non-profit organization in 1996; opened Frederick P. Rose Hall, the “House of Swing”, in 2004, making it the world’s first venue designed specifically for jazz; and launched Blue Engine Records in 2014 to share its vast archive of recordings. Over the past three decades, Jazz at Lincoln Center has become an important advocate for jazz, culture, and arts education globally, reaching an audience of nearly 2 million people of all ages and experiences through concerts, webcasting, musical instruction, and distribution of music scores—the vast majority of which is free of charge. To date, Jazz at Lincoln Center has produced more than 1,200 original concerts in the New York City area, with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra having performed in over 446 cities in 41 countries on five continents.

This milestone season reflects on 30 years of celebrating the universal language of music and the influence of jazz in the present day. Throughout the 2017–18 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center will bring together a wide array of events, projects, virtuoso musicians, composers, and educators to illustrate the collaborative nature of the art form. Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2017–18 season features performances by renowned artists including Joey Alexander, Chick Corea, Paquito D’Rivera, Eliane Elias, Ellis Marsalis, Dick Hyman, Marilyn Maye, Steve Miller, and Dianne Reeves; as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center debuts by the Harlem Quartet and vocalist and songwriter Somi.
