30th Anniversary Landmark Concerts - Create Your Own

Details

Wynton Marsalis

Rose Theater • 8:00PM

Thu, Jun 7 • Fri, Jun 8 • Sat, Jun 9

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra presents a rare concert devoted entirely to Wynton Marsalis' original music. In addition to a broad selection of favorites drawn from Marsalis' legendary career, the centerpiece of the evening will be the world premiere of Marsalis' new extended work: The Ever Fonky Lowdown. This JALC-commissioned piece is the latest entry to Marsalis' renowned canon of music exploring America's relationship to racial matters, a topic he revisits once per decade. This subject has yielded some of his best work: the 1986 Grammy Award-winning Black Codes (From the Underground), 2007's From the Plantation to the Penitentiary, and 1994's Blood on the Fields – the first jazz composition ever to win a Pulitzer Prize.
