Monday Nights with WBGO: Andrea Motis Quintet

Singer and trumpeter Andrea Motis makes her anticipated New York City debut at Jazz at Lincoln Center alongside the same remarkably consistent lineup that has brought incredible life to her albums. On Motis’ latest record, Do Outro Lado do Azul, she brings together jazz, Mediterranean influences, and above all, the sounds of Brazil and its legendary composers. Her overall repertoire is even more extensive, however, featuring smart originals, American songbook standards, and more. Motis plays trumpet with a bright, relaxed feel and sings with rare dexterity in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, and English. Her extremely tight band really rounds out the performance, holding it down with as a precise, yet soulful rhythm section and contributing plenty of memorable solos of their own. This performance is equally recommended for fans of jazz, Brazilian music, and beyond.

In Profoundly Blue, Cox celebrates the great hot jazz music of Louisiana-born clarinetist Edmond Hall.

One Step Beyond featuring Eric Person and Bryan Carrott

World-renowned saxophonist Eric Person has spent decades composing, recording, and performing a broad range of contemporary jazz at the highest level.

After multiple appearances on DownBeat magazine’s Critics and Readers Polls, in 2015 he was named No. 1 Rising Star Vibraphonist. His star continues to rise, and this co-headlining performance with Eric Person and One Step Beyond is yet another achievement worth checking out.

Mark Gross Quintet + Strings

Saxophonist Mark Gross consistently performs with the best musicians around, both as a headliner and in bands like the Jimmy Heath Big Band, John Pizzarelli Big Band, Mingus Big Band, Duke Ellington Orchestra, and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. It takes soul and an unfailing commitment to swing—in a huge variety of musical settings—to play in groups like these, and it’s with that spirit that Gross approaches his own shows with strings. Enjoy one of the top saxophonists on the scene in this admirable integration of swinging small group jazz and bowed strings.

That's Not Tango

That's Not Tango is a one-person narrative show with very live music performed by four virtuoso musicians. It chronicles Piazzolla's life, that of an imaginative and restless spirit who betrayed practically everyone who loved him on his way to becoming one of the most celebrated composers in the world. And in the end, he asks himself the age-old question: Was the sacrifice worth the art?
