Journey Through Jazz Series by music legend Wynton Marsalis at the Lincon Center
Jazz at Lincoln Center presents the second season of its Journey Through Jazz series.
Journey Through Jazz Series tackles the fundamentals of jazz, folk, blues and swing, created and hosted by Wynton Marsalis. An interactive, educational and family-friendly experience, Marsalis guides audiences through the evolution of jazz and blues in America with its own wisdom and humor, paired with the music of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO).
Journey Through Jazz Part II November 17-19 at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET, takes place in the Appel Room of Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located on Broadway at 60th Street in New York City , New York.
Throughout the series, the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis focuses on and illuminates a theme with musical examples. The two 2022-23 concerts approach the theme of community from different angles. The first concert explores the attributes that allow jazz, America’s native music, to intersect so easily and create communal bonds with diverse musical forms and cultures, empowering those who fully commit to it. Audiences will also gain a better understanding of jazz and music legends such as Duke Ellington of Harlem, Dave Brubeck and Leonard Bernstein, Wayne Shorter and Jelly Roll Morton. The second, Jazz Chronicles: Old and New (February 16-18, 2023), traces the oral tradition of jazz, the stories that give the community of practitioners living in the here and now, authority over the narrative of the development of music and traditions.

Jazz at Lincoln Center’s mission is to entertain, enrich and expand a global jazz community through performance, education and advocacy. We think jazz is a metaphor for democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression.
Because jazz is swing, it devotes this freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
