Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and special guest Jon Batiste Celebrating Duke Ellington

As summer turns to fall, celebrate under the stars in the stunning Greek Theatre, with one of the greatest jazz orchestras in the world! International jazz ambassador, nine-time Grammy winner, and Pulitzer Prize recipient Wynton Marsalis and his legendary Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra transform the magnificent outdoor theater into the biggest—and swinging-est—party in town. The orchestra is joined by charismatic pianist and music director of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s house band, Jon Batiste, for a program celebrating the legacy of Duke Ellington. Expect the full panorama of Ellingtonia, from early Cotton Club “jump” classics, to dreamy big-band ballads, to selections from the Duke’s lushly orchestrated suites.
