Music Legend Wynton Marsalis’s Journey Through Jazz Series At Lincon Center

Jazz at Lincoln Center presents the second season of its Journey Through Jazz Series.

Journey Through Jazz Series addresses the fundamentals of jazz, folk, blues and swing, created and hosted by Wynton Marsalis. An interactive, educational, and family-friendly experience, Marsalis guides 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).

Journey Through Jazz Part II on November 17-19 at 7:00 pm & 9:30 pm ET, takes place in the Appel Room at Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located at Broadway at 60th Street in New York, New York.

Throughout the series, the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis focuses on and illuminates a theme with musical examples. The two 2022-23 concerts address the theme of the 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 various musical forms and cultures, empowering those who fully engage with it. Audiences will also gain a deeper understanding of jazz and music legends such as Harlem‘s Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and Leonard Bernstein to Wayne Shorter and Jelly Roll Morton. The second, Jazz Chronicles: Old and New (February 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 and traditions.

The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to entertain, enrich, and expand a global community for jazz through performance, education, and advocacy. We believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression.

Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
