2019–20 CONCERT SEASON
CÉCILE MCLORIN SALVANT
ABOUT THE 2019–20 SEASON
Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 32nd concert season is about big ideas and inspiring figures. Anchored by the incomparable Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, the season offers newly commissioned world premieres alongside classic jazz masterpieces presented in a fresh, new light.
Hear the future of jazz in inventive programs from Ambrose Akinmusire, Cécile McLorin Salvant, and Jazzmeia Horn. Celebrate the Art Blakey centennial with a Jazz Messengers reunion. Experience 50 years of the pionneering ECM Records with Jack DeJohnette, Vijay Iyer, Meredith Monk, Ravi Coltrane, Bill Frisell, and Wadada Leo Smith. Join the JLCO—New York’s house band—as they play the music of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and Dave Brubeck...and venture with them from outer space to South Africa in exciting new programs. We also welcome back such icons as Bobby McFerrin, Glenn Close, Chucho Valdés, Chick Corea, and Steve Miller. Trinidad & Tobago’s world-famous Carnival comes to The Appel Room courtesy of trumpeter and percussionist Etienne Charles, and Michael Feinstein hosts and performs a Jazz & Popular Song extravaganza in Rose Theater for the first time. This is just a small a taste of our full 2019–20 concert season.
Jazz brings us together and raises our spirits. This 32nd concert season reinforces our conviction that all jazz is modern and that it bridges gaps across people of all backgrounds and ages. Come visit the House of Swing and be lifted up.
