World Premiere Performance by Joe Lovano Universal Jazz Ensemble

The Appel Room on October 18-19, 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

New York, NY (August 21, 2019) – On October 18-19 at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s The Appel Room, Joe Lovano -- tenor titan, and one of the world’s best saxophonists -- will debut the Joe Lovano Universal Jazz Ensemble, an all-star octet of innovators and free thinkers who span generations and move fluidly across genres. The Appel Room in Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, is located on Broadway at 60th Street in New York City. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit jazz.org.

Jazz at Lincoln Center proudly presents the world premiere performance by the Joe Lovano Universal Jazz Ensemble, designed “to create the music inside the music, always following the sound, wherever it takes us,” says Lovano. As with so many of his projects, he has assembled a never-before-heard combination of creative artists: pianist Kenny Werner, bassist John Patitucci, drummers Andrew Cyrille and Tyshawn Sorey, guitarist Liberty Ellman, trumpeter Graham Haynes and vocalist Judi Silvano -- each a respected composer, and bandleader, and performer embodying the many expressions of jazz.
