Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Announces 25th Anniversary Tour

January 3, 2013

Jazz at Lincoln Center celebrates its 25th anniversary and the formation of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra 25th Anniversary Tour. From January 23 to March 22, 2013, the tour will take the world-renowned big band across the U.S.: from Portland, Maine to Tallahassee, Florida and from Austin, Texas to Davis, California, performing a repertoire which may include classic Blue Note Records selections and tunes made famous by John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis and more.

In 1987, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis was comprised of the surviving members of the Duke Ellington Big Band and the Wynton Marsalis Septet. The critically-acclaimed resident orchestra continues to perform a repertoire across the full jazz spectrum – from the music’s New Orleans roots to bebop to modern jazz.
