Jazz at Lincoln Center Premieres Journey Through Jazz: Fundamentals With Wynton Marsalis

This month, Jazz at Lincoln Center and Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis will launch Journey Through Jazz: Fundamentals, a new concert event created and hosted by Marsalis. An interactive, educational, and family-friendly experience, Marsalis will guide audiences through the evolution of jazz and the blues in America with his own wisdom and humor, paired with music from the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) in a rare performance in the intimate Appel Room.

Throughout the series, Marsalis and the JLCO will address the fundamentals of jazz, folk, blues, and swing. The concerts on March 18 and 19, 2022, will delve into the JLCO’s repertoire with American folk and blues selections from legends Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, Leonard Bernstein, Wayne Shorter, and Jelly Roll Morton. Future Journey Through Jazz performances will be announced at a later date.

The Appel Room in Frederick P. Rose Hall is located on Broadway at 60th Street in New York, New York (just 20 to 30 minutes south of Harlem).

Tickets for the Journey Through Jazz in-person and live stream concerts are available for purchase via jazz.org/jtj.

Grand Seiko is the official timekeeper of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2021-22 season.
