For Immediate Release:  December 19, 2012

JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER ORCHESTRA WITH WYNTON MARSALIS
ANNOUNCE 25TH ANNIVERSARY U.S. TOUR

New York, NY - December 19, 2012    Jazz at Lincoln Center celebrates its 25th anniversary and the formation of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis’ 25th Anniversary Tour.  From January 23 to March 22, 2013, the tour will take the world-renowned big band across the U.S.:  from Portland, Maine to Tallahassee, Florida and from Austin, Texas to Davis, California.  The JLCO will bring JALC’s milestone 25th anniversary celebration to 27 cities and will perform a brilliant repertoire which may include classic Blue Note Records selections and tunes made famous by John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis and more.

Exclusive JALC 25th anniversary t-shirts and baseball caps will be available for purchase in every tour venue. 

In 1987, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis was comprised of the surviving members of the Duke Ellington Big Band and the Wynton Marsalis Septet.  The critically-acclaimed resident orchestra continues to perform a repertoire across the full jazz spectrum - from the music’s New Orleans roots to bebop to modern jazz.  By creating and performing an expansive range of brilliant new music for quartets, big bands, chamber music ensembles, symphony orchestras, tap dance, and ballet, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra has expanded the vocabulary for jazz and created a vital body of work that places the group among the finest musicians today.
