Eddie Daniels, Harlem Quartet and Ted Nash

The Appel Room • 7:00PM, 9:30PM

Fri, Jun 1 • Sat, Jun 2

Eddie Daniels is the preeminent jazz and classical clarinet virtuoso, described by Benny Goodman as his "successor" and by Leonard Bernstein as a "thoroughly well-bred demon" who "combines elegance with virtuosity." He'll be playing alongside composer, fellow woodwind master, and two-time 2017 Grammy Award winner Ted Nash of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Joining this formidable pair is a swinging jazz rhythm section and the Harlem Quartet. The string group will add extra color to Nash’s brand new composition and to his arrangements of pieces by Vivaldi, Bach, and Ravel.

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.
