The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis - The Music Of John Lewis
featuring Jon Batiste
Few captured the sleek, swinging sophistication of jazz better than pianist, composer, and bandleader John Lewis, who had a long, deep, personal relationship with Jazz at Lincoln Center.
"He used to always call our program a miracle," says Wynton Marsalis. "He used to always say, 'Keep that miracle going.' In 2013, when the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis set out to honor the legacy of the Modern Jazz Quartet's maestro, they teamed up with New Orleans' own Jon Batiste. The bandleader of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and a prodigious pianist in his own right, Batiste joined the JLCO to tackle some of Lewis's most iconic tunes during a sold-out concert in Rose Theater, the House of Swing.
