Internationally Ellington (Available through Apr 6)
Featured Category • 2h 8m
The fruits of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s educational mission will be on display with Internationally Ellington, featuring a hand-picked ensemble of some of the greatest young talent in jazz meeting the challenges posed by Duke Ellington, JALC’s lodestar and jazz’s greatest composer. “Duke played with musicians all over the world, incorporated so many people into his band, wrote music for all the different cultures – everything from the Far East Suite to the Shakespearean suite (Such Sweet Thunder) to the Latin American Suite to the Liberian Suite,” says Wynton Marsalis. “Duke was out there in front, dealing with the world as a singular place.”
There will be a free pre-concert lecture at 7pm for each performance. This program is presented as part of the Ertegun Jazz Concert Series.
