The Fantastic Mr. Jelly Lord

Thu, Sep 14 • Fri, Sep 15 • Sat, Sep 16

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis kicks off our 30th season with a joyous celebration of New Orleans legend Jelly Roll Morton (1890–1941). Jazz’s first great composer, musical intellect, and piano virtuoso, Morton gave us the musical blueprint of an eternal New Orleans and jazz as we know it today. Through both classic and never-before-heard arrangements of essential tunes like "King Porter Stomp," "Jungle Blues," “Black Bottom Stomp,” and “The Pearls,” the JLCO will showcase the contemporary power and the depth of possibility in the earliest jazz.
