The Appel Room
Jazz at Lincoln Center honors legends who have left a significant footprint in history while continuing to both nurture the now and inspire the future. In the first installment of this series, JALC honored “jazz impresario” George Wein. This year’s honoree is master vibraphonist and veteran bandleader Bobby Hutcherson. Known for his originative four-mallet approach to the vibes, Hutcherson is one of the pioneers of his instrument along with greats Lionel Hampton and Milt Jackson.
Salsa giant Rubén Blades makes his Jazz at Lincoln Center debut in this extraordinary three-night-only collaboration with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.
Our Jazz in the Americas motif continues as the Jazz for Young People® series honors master musician, composer, arranger, and “King of the Timbales” Tito Puente. Join JLCO bassist Carlos Henriquez and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis in an enthusiastic exploration of Puente’s legacy.
