Journey Through Jazz Pt. II
JLCO Performances • 1h 19m
JALC presents the second season of its Journey Through Jazz Series, in which Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis focuses on and illuminates a theme with musical examples. The two 2022-23 concerts address the theme of community from different angles. The first concert explores what attributes allow jazz, America’s indigenous music, to intersect so fluently and create communal bonds with other musical forms and cultures, empowering anyone who fully engages with it. The second, Jazz Chronicles: Old and New (The Appel Room, Feb. 16–18, 2023), traces the oral tradition of jazz, the stories that give the community of practitioners living in the here-and-now agency over the narrative of the music’s development, its living and changing traditions.
