Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 33rd season will include appearances from a wide array of internationally renowned vocalists, tributes to the legends of jazz and premieres of new suites by members of its resident orchestra.
The season will kick off Sept. 25-26, with a program featuring new arrangements of classic Charlie Parker tunes for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and will end with a similar program featuring the music of John Coltrane (June 11-12). In both cases, younger saxophonists will be featured guests.
In between, the season will comprise more than two dozen different two-night engagements at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s main stages, the Appel Room and the Rose Theater.
On Oct. 2-3, a quartet featuring Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Christian McBride and Brian Blade will revisit “MoodSwing,” an album that these four jazz luminaries released in 1994 (as the Joshua Redman Quartet).
