Throughout March, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.
An ensemble of 15 virtuoso instrumentalists, unique soloists, composers, arrangers, and educators – performs an unprecedented variety of styles and genres with characteristic flair and authority.
Featuring the renowned big band and inviting a diverse roster of guest artists, each concert takes place in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, located at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, at 60th Street and Broadway in New York City.
On March 8-9, at 8:00 p.m., the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, with Music Director Wynton Marsalis and guest saxophonists Joe Lovano and Walter Blanding, explores the widely influential corpus of Wayne Shorter, whose 2015 JALC residency resulted in an acclaimed live album issued on Blue Engine Records, the official label of Jazz at Lincoln Center. Marsalis praises Shorter as a “purveyor of pentatonic perfection; master of blues-inflected melodies; hero of vertical and horizontal harmonic implications; giant of saxophone regardless of register; improviser-extraordinaire in any musical environments; mercurial wit and biting humorist with uncommon humility and depth of understanding, seer, reader, and interpreter of ancient and modern myth… jazz messenger.” For more information, visit jazz.org/WayneShorter.
Budding music enthusiasts and their families can celebrate Women’s History Month with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, featuring Music Director Chris Crenshaw and guest vocalist Tammy McCann, as they share the music of The Queen of Gospel, Mahalia Jackson. Her impassioned delivery and spirituality continue to inspire artists and listeners of all ages. This edition of the family concert series, which has been a Jazz at Lincoln Center staple for decades, takes place on March 15 at 3:00 p.m.

On March 22-23 at 8:00 p.m., guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel, one of the most respected composers and improvisers of the 21st century, performs the world premiere of Community and Continuum, his Jazz at Lincoln Center-commissioned program of newly arranged original music alongside the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2023-24 season focuses on the concept of community; the broader community of jazz; the numerous communities that nurtured its master practitioners across its timeline; the communities of consciousness that influenced these practitioners; the music’s power to bridge divides and coalesce these distinct communities; and the role of jazz – and the arts writ large – in maintaining the human connection in the digital era. Throughout its 2023-24 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center explores these subjects with concerts featuring the forward-thinking composers, virtuosic improvisers, and ingenious conceptualists that populate the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Implicitly or explicitly, season concerts, education programs, advocacy initiatives, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra tours directly evoke themes that illuminate, as Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis put it, the notion that “Our music has the exceptional ability to bring people together.”
The organization’s 36th season runs from Sept. 21, 2023, to June 8, 2024, in Rose Theater, The Appel Room, and Dizzy’s Club – all at Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located on Broadway at 60th St. in New York, New York. In addition to 24 unique live concerts throughout Frederick P. Rose Hall and more than 350 nights of music at Dizzy’s Club, the organization offers webcast performances via the Jazz Live app, in-person and virtual education programs, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis tour dates worldwide.
