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 to share its vast archive of recordings in 2014. Over the past three decades, Jazz at Lincoln Center has become an important advocate for jazz, culture, and arts education globally, with a global 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 change. 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 present day. Throughout the 2017-18 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center will bring together a wide array of events, projects and virtuoso musicians, composers and educators illustrating the collaborative nature of the art form. Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2017-18 season includes performances by renowned artists including Joey Alexander, Chick Corea, Paquito D’Rivera, Eliane Elias, Dick Hyman, Marilyn Maye, Steve Miller, Dianne Reeves, and Henry Threadgill; as well as Jazz at Lincoln Center debuts by Harlem Quartet and vocalist and songwriter Somi.
