Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra - 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 the world premiere of Wynton 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.
