Jazz at Lincoln Center
"Jazz at Lincoln Center" presents concerts that can be heard nowhere else. From the Allen Room, Rose Hall, and the Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center, all created specifically for jazz, and from Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, this Peabody Award-winning program brings us thematic programs with the world’s great performers. A number of times each year, these programs feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by the Center’s Artistic Director, Wynton Marsalis. The program is hosted by veteran actor and New Orleans native Wendell Pierce. Pierce brings the outstanding performances from Jazz at Lincoln Center's House of Swing. Each week, Pierce hosts the story of jazz through music and the players in their own words.
