Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
  • Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra
  • Wynton Marsalis, music director and trumpet

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra—widely recognized as one of the world’s premier large jazz ensembles—is led by trumpeter-composer Wynton Marsalis and includes 14 additional top soloists and ensemble players.

JLCO, the resident orchestra of Jazz at Lincoln Center since 1988, plays concerts at its home venue, New York’s Frederick P. Rose Hall, and spends several months each year touring across the U.S. and around the globe. It performs traditional jazz repertoire as well as newly commissioned works by Marsalis, Benny Carter, Wycliffe Gordon, Ted Nash and other notable talents. In recent years it has performed with such renowned orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, Russian National Orchestra, Berlin Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestra. JLCO’s education and performance residencies have taken the ensemble as far afield as France, Prague, Brazil and Japan. JLCO has been featured on numerous television broadcasts and on 14 CDs, most recently Vitoria Suite and Portrait in Seven Shades.

JLCO is integral to many of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s youth-oriented offerings, including a family concert series, Jazz for Young People, which often features the JLCO. Other educational programs of Jazz at Lincoln Center, including the Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition and Festival, reach more than 110,000 students, teachers and other audience members. Among the institution’s honors is a prestigious Peabody Award, recognizing the weekly radio series Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio. For more information, visit jalc.org.

Wynton Marsalis, who serves as both music director of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, is one of today’s foremost ambassadors of jazz. He is the first composer to win a Pulitzer Prize for a jazz work—his oratorio Blood on the Fields—and remains the only artist to receive classical and jazz Grammy Awards in the same year. His recent projects include a mass for choir and jazz orchestra; Blues Symphony, premiered in 2009 by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra; and Swing Symphony, which was co-commissioned by the New York Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic and London’s Barbican Centre.

Active in music education, Marsalis has conducted numerous programs for students of all ages and has released six books, most recently Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!, illustrated by Paul Rogers. He is a U.N. Messenger of Peace and a cultural ambassador through the U.S. State Department’s CultureConnect program. He was instrumental in the Higher Ground Hurricane Relief concert, produced by Jazz at Lincoln Center, which raised more than $3 million to benefit the musicians, music industry-related enterprises and others from the Greater New Orleans areas affected by Hurricane Katrina.
