Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra present Wynton Marsalis’ Spaces
March 25, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Join Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as they present an all new composition for orchestra and dance by Wynton Marsalis titled “Spaces.” While Wynton Marsalis does not appear in this performance, his masterful composition will be the highlight of the evening. Spaces combines modern dance with big band jazz in a playful and wildly entertaining exploration of the animal kingdom. Each of Spaces’ ten movements corresponds to a different animal, from “King Lion” to “Bees, Bees, Bees,” offering a dazzling array of sights and sounds that express the diversity, humor, and quirky majesty found in nature. For this performance, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will be joined by Bessie Award winning ‘jookin’ dance artists Myles Yachts and Broadway triple threat tap artist Jared Grimes reprising their roles, leaping, sliding, flipping and tap dancing across the stage.
