Grace Kelly

Friday, October 19, 2018 at 8pm sponsored by

Carol and Les Elliott

Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet with the genre-bending zest and energy of a 25-year old. Having performed at President Obama’s Inauguration at 16, Kelly was a regular on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human. “Charismatic and immensely talented” (DownBeat Magazine), Kelly has drawn critical praise and new fans every year with headlining over 800 shows in 30 countries at all major jazz festivals, from Montreux to Newport to Montréal. A multiple award winner as an alto sax player and composer, Grace Kelly is a fearless jazz innovator and a world class saxophonist who’s making jazz young.

Bill and Carolyn Klein

Winner of nine Grammy awards and a Pulitzer Prize in music, Wynton Marsalis has been described as one of the most outstanding jazz musicians and trumpeters of his generation, a brilliant composer, and a bandleader in the tradition of Duke Ellington. A driving creative force behind Jazz at Lincoln Center’s founding and success, he brings uncompromising intensity and swinging virtuosity to each and every performance and is a favorite among jazz musicians and audiences worldwide. In a special program featuring the music of Duke Ellington, Marsalis plays with 15 of the finest soloists and ensemble players in jazz music today—musicians celebrated for their stylistic versatility and unparalleled ensemble cohesion.

Dr. Bobby Rodriguez Latin Jazz Christmas

Sunday, December 2, 2018 at 7pm Grammy nominee Bobby Rodriguez is a first-rate jazz trumpeter and a dynamic leader of jazz and Latin ensembles. Known for his fiery and sensitive brand of trumpet playing, he has performed and recorded with an illustrious array of world-class musicians, including Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Poncho Sanchez and Ray Charles.

John Pizzarelli Salute to Sinatra & Jobim @50

Fred Hersch Trio

Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 8pm

Friday, March 29, 2019 at 8pm

A 12-time Grammy Award nominee, Fred Hersch is an artist of unbounded imagination. A powerful creative force, he has shaped the course of jazz over more than three decades as an improviser, composer and recording artist.

Two of John Pizzarelli’s greatest influences, Frank Sinatra and the bossa nova composer Antonio Carlos Jobim, joined forces in 1967 to present a softer, sultrier side of Sinatra on the heels of “That’s Life” and “Strangers in the Night.” Half a century later, John Pizzarelli is celebrating that unique gathering and pays tribute to those original recordings.

Proclaimed “the most arrestingly innovative pianist in jazz over the last decade” by Vanity Fair, Hersch has long defined jazz’s creative edge in a wide variety of settings, from his breathtaking solo recitals and exploratory duos to his extraordinary trios and innovative chamber settings. With some three dozen albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, Hersch consistently wins an international array of awards and lavish critical praise.

Dee Dee Bridgewater with the Memphis Soulphony

Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 8pm

Over the course of a career spanning four decades, threetime Grammy and Tony Award-winning jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking bold leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics. Ever the intrepid pioneer and keeper of tradition, Bridgewater has performed with such jazz notables as Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon and Dizzy Gillespie. In her stunning new album, Memphis...Yes, I’m Ready, she honors the city and her roots with such classics as B.B. King’s “The Thrill Is Gone,” Otis Redding’s “Try A Little Tenderness,” and “Why? (Am I Treated So Bad)” by The Staple Singers.

John Pizzarelli has been entertaining audiences for over 20 years, singing classic standards and late-night ballads, and playing sublime and inventive guitar. Using greats like Nat “King” Cole and Frank Sinatra (for whom he opened in 1993) as touchstones, Pizzarelli brings a cool jazz flavor to the Great American Songbook. Pizzarelli has collaborated with an array of artists that include James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Rickie Lee Jones, Rosemary Clooney, and of course, his father, the legendary jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli. With his charm, humor and rollicking swing jazz showmanship, Pizzarelli is setting the standard for stylish modern jazz.

Christian McBride Big Band Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 8pm sponsored by

Jacquelynn & Roland Beverly

With a career now blazing into its third decade, six-time Grammy-winning jazz bassist, Christian McBride, can be likened to a force of nature. The Philadelphia native has become one of the most requested, most recorded, and most respected figures in the music world today. His latest release, Bringin’ It, won the 2018 Grammy Award for Best Large Jazz Ensemble and puts his status and skills as an all-around entertainer on full display. From jazz (Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock) to R&B (Chaka Khan, Natalie Cole, and the one and only Godfather of Soul himself, James Brown) to pop/ rock (Sting, Paul McCartney) to classical (Kathleen Battle, Edgar Meyer), the iconic Christian McBride is powered by an impassioned energy and a boundless love of swing.
