The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis celebrate the legacy of Dave Brubeck, an artist committed to impacting society through the arts and catalyzing social change, who was instrumental in spreading jazz’s message around the world from the mid-‘50s until not long before his death. Over the course of nearly 92 extraordinary years, more than 70 of them spent as a professional musician, Brubeck recorded nearly 100 albums as a leader, and wrote several hundred songs for a series of quartets. Marsalis and the JLCO explore his music with fresh arrangements that illuminate the maestro’s breadth and scope. Plus, join Wynton Marsalis and the JLCO for a post concert “Goggle Hangout” conversation right after their broadcast featuring: The Life & Music of Dave Brubeck.

Rosenwinkel’s unique guitar sound and influential compositions, blending dense harmonies, gorgeous melodies, and complex forms with, are as Jackson states, "a very conscious and present understanding of the blues and what the blues are in jazz music." And don't miss the post concert “Goggle Hangout” conversation!
