2018-19 Season Opening Weekend

Wynton Marsalis’ Spaces combines modern dance with big band jazz in a playful and wildly entertaining exploration of the animal kingdom. Performed for the first time (to sold-out crowds) in 2016, this visually captivating Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis production returns to kick off our 31st season before embarking on a national tour. Each of Spaces’ ten movements corresponds to a different animal, from “King Lion” to “Bees, Bees, Bees,” offering a dazzling array of sights and sounds that express the diversity, humor, and quirky majesty found in nature. The same two singular dance geniuses from the Spaces premiere—Lil Buck and Jared Grimes—reprise their roles, leaping, sliding, flipping, and tap dancing across the stage.

ELLA SANG THE BLUES WITH BRIANNA THOMAS
2018-19 Season Opening Weekend

September 14–15, 2018 | 7:00pm & 9:30pm | The Appel Room
Soulful vocalist Brianna Thomas reimagines Ella Fitzgerald’s These Are the Blues, the only all-blues album Fitzgerald ever released. Thomas is a commanding young singer oozing with personality, and when it comes to the blues she is the definition of a “showstopper.” She has recently become quite an audience favorite at Jazz at Lincoln Center, having also performed Valentine’s Day at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, the acclaimed Ladies Sing the Blues and Fabulous Dorsey Brothers shows in The Appel Room, and multiple concerts with rock legend Steve Miller in Rose Theater. After witnessing an early version of this program during the 2017 Generations in Jazz Festival, audiences, critics, and Jazz at Lincoln Center staff all agreed it was one of the best performances of the entire month-long festival. This Opening Weekend Appel Room concert is your chance to catch an expanded version of this instant hit show. For one of the most powerful current examples of the blues, don’t miss Brianna Thomas and her A-list band performing tunes like “St. Louis Blues” and “Hear Me Talkin’ to Ya” in Ella Sang the Blues.

CELEBRATING CANNONBALL'S 90TH WITH SPECIAL GUEST JIMMY COBB
Generations in Jazz Festival
September 16, 2018 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm | Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola

An all-star band of Jim Snidero, Jeremy Pelt, Mike LeDonne, and Nat Reeves celebrates saxophone titan Cannonball Adderley with the help of a very special guest: NEA Jazz Master drummer Jimmy Cobb. Cobb worked extensively with Cannonball in the 1950s, and his powerfully swinging drumming is featured on a series of classic Cannonball albums. Cobb and Cannonball’s most famous pairing, however, is undoubtedly on Miles Davis’ 1959 landmark Kind of Blue. It is no exaggeration to say that together they made contributions that changed the history of jazz, and it’s an extraordinary opportunity to have Cobb involved in this celebratory performance. On top of this, the entire band is comprised of bandleaders who each sell out shows at Dizzy’s Club with their own groups. This special concert will feature repertoire from the core group’s recently released album, Jim Snidero and Jeremy Pelt: Jubiliation! Celebrating Cannonball Adderley, which gives Cobb a chance to revisit several tunes that he himself originally performed and recorded with Cannonball.

REGINA CARTER & XAVIER DAVIS
Generations in Jazz Festival
September 19, 2018 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm | Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola

For the eighth year in a row, genius violinist Regina Carter has won first place in DownBeat magazine’s annual Critics Poll. Already the recipient of a MacArthur “genius” grant, Carter also recently received the prestigious Doris Duke Artist Award, one of the foremost recognitions for a creative artist. In this special co-headlining performance, Carter will play with piano virtuoso Xavier Davis. One of the most forward-thinking mainstays in modern jazz, Davis works constantly with the top echelon of artists. This distinctive pairing has proven extraordinary across a series of distinctive collaborations beginning back in 2004, and we’re thrilled to give our audiences an opportunity to see these singular artists in duet

AMERICAN ROOTS: MARK O’CONNOR & FRIENDS
JAZZ, BLUEGRASS, AND FOLK
October 5–6, 2018 | 7:00pm & 9:30pm | The Appel Room
Fiddle virtuoso Mark O’Connor leads a rousing exploration of early American music and its relationship to jazz, highlighting connections between the blues, bluegrass, Cajun, gospel, folk, spirituals, western swing, contemporary jazz, and more. Winner of three Grammy Awards and seven Country Music Awards, O’Connor is the preeminent entertainer and scholar of this diverse but unified musical heritage. Tonight he will be leading the newly formed Mark O’Connor Family Band, whose debut album won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album. The Nashville-based group features Maggie O’Connor and Kate Lee on fiddle and vocals, Forrest O’Connor on mandolin and vocals, Geoff Saunders on banjo and bass, and National Flatpick Guitar Champion Joe Smart. It’s one of the most exciting new groups to emerge in recent years, and special guest artists will make the evening unforgettable. Blues numbers will be performed alongside Grammy Award-winning guitarist and vocalist Alvin Youngblood Hart, and the inimitable Lizz Wright will elevate the spirituals with her soul-stirring voice. Like much of our 2018–19 concert season, this Appel Room show celebrates essential common threads in America’s cultural heritage and musical lifeblood with authenticity and genre-crossing expertise.

JOEY ALEXANDER WITH STRINGS
October 19–20, 2018 | 8:00pm | Rose Theater

When Joey Alexander first performed in Rose Theater at age 11, it was a history-making highlight of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2014 gala. He has since sold out Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Appel Room and Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, and now, at age 15, he returns to our largest stage as a headliner. Following multiple Grammy Award nominations, a 60 Minutes feature, performances at top international festivals, and universal critical acclaim, this young virtuoso continues to challenge himself and expand his artistry. That passion will be felt tonight as Alexander performs original compositions and his favorite jazz classics in solo, duo, and trio settings—as well as with a string section for the first time in his career. The string parts will be written and conducted by Grammy Award-winning composer and arranger Richard DeRosa. A master craftsman, DeRosa has arranged for Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Glenn Miller, Steven Sondheim, the Chicago Orchestra, New York Pops, and dozens more. With DeRosa’s brilliant contributions, Alexander joins a celebrated lineage of jazz musicians to perform with strings. It is a thrilling privilege to witness the evolution of a rare talent like Joey Alexander, and these concerts will be another firsthand experience of history in the making.

THE JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER ORCHESTRA PLAYS MONK
Monk Festival
October 25–27, 2018 | 8:00pm | Rose Theater

Thelonious Monk’s music is a playful, profound, and universally loved jazz canon that brings together musicians of all backgrounds and offers endless opportunity for interpretation. The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will one day become the first big band ever to play all 72 original Monk compositions. The band has been performing a steadily growing Monk repertoire since its inception (now totaling over 40 songs), and tonight you will hear the latest additions to this favorite songbook. In addition to new versions penned by members of the JLCO, you will also hear arrangements written exclusively for this event by some of jazz’s most promising young musicians, including Joe Block and Matt Wong, both winners of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Essentially Ellington Composition/Arrangement competition. Many established musicians have come through the prestigious Essentially Ellington program, including Aaron Diehl, JLCO bassist Carlos Henriquez, and Russell Hall—who is headlining in The Appel Room as part of this weekend’s Monk Festival. Thelonious Monk himself was only 18 years old when he wrote the masterpiece “’Round Midnight,” and this performance is a chance to hear the next generation of leaders reinterpret his timeless music for a band that can play anything.

MONK’S DREAM
Monk Festival
October 26–28, 2018 | 7:00pm & 9:30pm | The Appel Roo

In this one-of-a-kind Thelonious Monk celebration, bassist Russell Hall leads a band as eclectic and full of life as Monk’s music. These young musicians hail from Jamaica, New Orleans, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Hawaii, South Africa, France, and England, but they are united in jazz, and they are taking over the New York City jazz scene. Tonight’s performances will be particularly special, as living legend and Monk’s close personal friend Barry Harris joins on piano alongside Mathis Picard, and one of the best drummers of our time, jazz veteran Jeff “Tain” Watts, shares the stage with rising star drummer Kyle Poole. Everyone in the band gets a turn to shine, though. Vibraphone virtuoso Joel Ross is a revelation on a lush rendition of “’Round Midnight.” Ellington’s ballad “I Got it Bad (And That’s Not Good)” begins with Vuyo Sotashe’s heart-stoppingly sweet vocals before bursting into an up-tempo trio number like Monk’s classic version. Trumpeter Bruce Harris and saxophonists Ruben Fox and Julian Lee show their chops on the tricky Monk-inspired original, “A Nod to the High Priest.” Guitarist Gabe Schnider and tap dancer Michela Marino Lerman star in a new take on “Brilliant Corners” that you need to see to believe. It’s a beautifully designed show full of creative Monk arrangements that keep things varied and swinging. This supremely talented and diverse band represents the ideal and future of authentic jazz. Do not miss out when they celebrate Thelonious Monk alongside two of the all-time greatest instrumentalists.

MOSTLY MONK: MIKE LeDONNE TRIO
Monk Festival
October 26–27, 2018 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm | Dizzy’s Club
Coca-Cola
Pianist and organist Mike LeDonne made his recording debut in 1988, and he’s still managed to work with a number of the all-time jazz greats: Benny Goodman, Sonny Rollins, Milt Jackson, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Golson, and more. Tonight, he brings his trio to the Dizzy’s Club stage for a tribute to Thelonious Monk as part of the Jazz at Lincoln Center-wide festival.

DIANE SCHUUR SINGS COUNT BASIE
November 2–3, 2018 | 7:00pm & 9:30pm | The Appel Room
Diane Schuur
(AKA “Deedles”) is a singer, pianist, and all-around entertainer with a big voice and an even bigger personality. Tonight she’ll be performing tunes from Diane Schuur & The Count Basie Orchestra, her classic album that topped the Billboard jazz charts for nearly a year and earned Schuur her second Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. With big arrangements, infectious riffs, and exuberant call and response, Basie’s music is a cornerstone jazz style that’s irresistible in live settings. Part of Basie’s lasting popularity also comes from his iconic series of Basie singers, a lineage in which Schuur follows Ella Fitzgerald by less than a decade. Schuur’s charts are the real deal too, and tonight the Riley Mulherkar Big Band will be playing the authentic, original Count Basie Orchestra parts that always brought the house down. Schuur has often worked with leaders of previous generations, like Ray Charles and Stan Getz, and she now joins a leader of tomorrow in this new multi-generational pairing.  Mulherkar’s energetic young big band continues the Basie tradition of bringing a party to the concert hall, and the group is a perfect fit for a powerhouse vocalist like Schuur. Together they will bring Basie’s unstoppable swing to The Appel Room through songs such as “Everyday (I have the Blues),” “Them There Eyes,” “You Can Have It,” and “Deedles’ Blues.”

FAMILY CONCERT: WHO IS JOE WILLIAMS?
November 3, 2018 | 1:00pm & 3:00pm | Rose Theater

THE JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER OCHESTRA PLAYS MILES DAVIS
November 8–10, 2018 | 8:00pm | Rose Theater

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performs Miles Davis’ groundbreaking music from the 1940s–60s. Davis’ work during these years is unparalleled in its stylistic range, impact, and enduring popularity, and this show will explore the pivotal musical moments on his quest towards innovation. After demonstrating Davis’ early bebop stylings, as heard in songs like “Little Willie Leaps,” the JLCO will move on to the rich, textured arrangements of Birth of the Cool, showcasing the unconventional brass instrumentation that gave it its unique sound. You will hear landmark pieces from Davis’ “first great quintet,” including his initial experiment with modal jazz in 1958’s “Milestones”—a style fleshed out further in Davis’ 1959 landmark, Kind of Blue. Davis stayed ahead of the curve throughout the 1960s, offering a preview of the sounds that would gain popularity in years to come. The JLCO will show you this progression, revisiting the “second great quintet’s” brand of swinging, avant-garde eclecticism as well as the earliest traces of Davis’ transition into electric jazz. For this last component, the JLCO will perform an expansive arrangement of “Tout de Suite”— Davis’ first work with Chick Corea and Dave Holland. This timeless music remains enormously popular among both hardcore jazz fans and casual listeners, and this concert will provide you with new perspective on each composition and creative breakthrough.

THE CARLOS HENRIQUEZ PROJECT
November 16–17, 2018 | 7:00pm & 9:30pm | The Appel Room

Bassist and composer Carlos Henriquez is one of the first truly bilingual musicians, a virtuoso in both jazz and Afro-Latin traditions. Henriquez has been a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra since he was only 19 years old, and New York Latin Culture calls him “the most important Latin jazz artist in New York City today, the heir to the legacy of Tito Puente.” The Bronx native has been a phenomenon since high school, back when he was playing with greats like Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, and Celia Cruz, and he is now emerging as one of Latin jazz’s most compelling composers, bandleaders, and music directors. Tonight’s show is the debut of his newest project, a program curated entirely by Henriquez to explore new angles of the Latin jazz continuum. As always, it will be a lively, insightful, and technically marvelous marriage of established traditions and cutting-edge possibilities.

WYCLIFFE GORDON & FRIENDS
November 21–25, 2018 | 7:30pm & 9:30pm | Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola

This former star of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Wynton Marsalis Septet kicks off the holiday season with a five-night stay at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, including a special performance on Thanksgiving.

STEVE MILLER WITH MARTY STUART
MUSIC FROM APPALACHIA
December 7–8, 2018 | 8:00pm | Rose Theater

Renowned blues-rock guitarist, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller continues his exploration of the blues. Having learned his first chords at age five from his godfather Les Paul, how to play lead guitar from T-Bone Walker at age nine, and then working with the best bluesmen in Chicago—Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, and Paul Butterfield—Miller has a serious affinity for the blues. Each season he works with Jazz at Lincoln Center to present and expand upon one of the genre’s many unique flavors. This year, Miller and an all-star group of jazz, blues, and roots musicians will dig deep into classic Appalachian blues and bluegrass styles. This historic repertoire gives Miller an opportunity to really show off his talent at acoustic, finger-style guitar. For the first time in this series, Miller welcomes guitarist, mandolinist, vocalist, and American music icon Marty Stuart as co-star. Stuart was one of Johnny Cash’s late musical cohorts, and he is a chart-topping songwriter and producer, host of TV’s The Marty Stuart Show, and the winner of multiple Grammy Awards, Country Music Awards, International Bluegrass Music Awards, and the Americana Music Honors Lifetime Achievement Award. He and Miller will play alongside Stuart’s regular band, Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, which was named 2017 Group of the Year by the Americana Music Honors and Awards. These musicians are the real deal, and they will help you feel a whole new side of the blues. Additional special guests will be announced as the concert gets closer, but these shows regularly sell out, so don’t wait to get the seats you want.

NAT KING COLE AT 100 WITH SACHAL VASANDANI
December 14–15, 2018 | 7:00pm & 9:30pm | The Appel Room

Vocalist Sachal Vasandani is one of the great crooners of our time and the perfect man for a Nat “King” Cole centennial celebration. Though a distinctive artist in his own right, his “beautiful, velvety voice” and “remarkable stage presence” (NPR) have drawn multiple comparisons to Nat “King” Cole himself. Vasandani is particularly well known for his Cole tribute project, which has featured classics like “Unforgettable,” “Mona Lisa,” and “Straighten Up and Fly Right.” This showcase has graced major stages in both small group and orchestral settings, and the new versions performed tonight in the elegant majesty of The Appel Room—with its unparalleled view of the New York skyline—will take it to the next level. In addition to his vocal abilities and cool, charismatic showmanship, Vasandani also honors Cole’s legacy as a masterful pianist by sharing the spotlight with some of the best instrumentalists in the business—including bass legend John Clayton, who will contribute new Cole arrangements for this centennial event. In this special centennial celebration, audiences will enjoy the many sides of Nat “King” Cole’s artistry in an appropriately stylish setting.

CHARLES LLOYD & THE MARVELS: 80TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
FEATURING BILL FRISELL AND SPECIAL GUEST LUCINDA WILLIAMS

December 14–15, 2018 | 8:00pm | Rose Theater
Charles Lloyd
was only 29 years old when TIME magazine noted one of his most distinguishing and enduring traits. It was 1967, and Lloyd had just led the first jazz group ever to perform at San Francisco’s counter-cultural hotspot, the Fillmore. “Though modern jazz normally goes over with teens like a 9pm curfew,” TIME wrote, “Lloyd’s passionate attack holds them spellbound.” Lloyd—now celebrating his 80th birthday with us in Rose Theater—is an NEA Jazz Master, saxophone titan, bandleader, and composer with a rare crossover appeal. To this day, he performs his soulful music with a fervor and emotional abandon that connects with a diverse community of listeners. After establishing his jazz bona fides in the early 1960s as a key member of Chico Hamilton and Cannonball Adderley’s groups, Lloyd formed his historic quartet with Keith Jarrett, Cecil McBee, and Jack DeJohnette, bringing improvised jazz to brand new audiences and recording one of the first jazz albums to sell a million copies. A veritable rock star, Lloyd then shared bills and recording dates with the Grateful Dead, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, and the Beach Boys, and he now leads some of jazz’s most distinctive and celebrated small groups. His current band, The Marvels, is the perfect vehicle for his stylistically varied and spiritually engaging music, and Jazzwise called their 2016 debut album “perhaps the finest of Lloyd’s career.” Featuring Lloyd’s longtime rhythm section of bassist Reuben Rodgers and drummer Eric Harland, plus steel pedal guitar master Greg Leisz and singular six-stringer Bill Frisell, The Marvels play new originals, Lloyd classics, and transformative versions of American roots music, gospel, rock and pop hits, Mexican folk songs, and much more.” Joining them tonight is iconic vocalist and songwriter Lucinda Williams, who has performed live with The Marvels on a few special occasions and recently recorded an acclaimed version of Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War” with the band. Catch them together in Rose Theater for an experience that has been bringing music lovers together for half of a century.

BIG BAND HOLIDAYS
December 19–23, 2018 | 7:00pm (Wed), 8:00pm (Thurs-Sat), 2pm (Sun) | Rose Theater

With soulful big band arrangements of songs both sacred and secular, Big Band Holidays is an uplifting tradition enjoyed by audiences of all ages and backgrounds. In addition to some swinging JLCO instrumentals, special guest vocalists join the band each season for imaginative new versions of classics like “Jingle Bells” and “Merry Christmas Baby.” Recent Big Band Holidays programs have featured such acclaimed vocalists as Cécile McLorin Salvant, Gregory Porter, René Marie, and Catherine Russell, and this year the JLCO welcomes two standout rising stars to join this tradition: Vuyo Sotashe and Veronica Swift. These distinctive young talents have both been major hits in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s smaller venues as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center Shanghai, and Big Band Holidays will be their first chance to take the Rose Theater stage. Join them in the House of Swing for some yuletide cheer and shared holiday excitement sure to brighten up your season.

In addition to recording over 30 albums of his own across six decades, he has played on classic recordings like The Magnificent Thad Jones and Lee Morgan’s The Sidewinder. As vital as ever, Harris is an example of what makes New York City the jazz capital of the world; his live performances are widely celebrated, yet down-to-earth affairs, and his weekly jazz workshops have made him an invaluable educational resource for musicians.
