McBride emerged in the '90s as a young superstar of modern jazz and stuck it out to become an established and respected presence on the jazz scene today. One of the most recorded musicians of his generation, McBride has played alongside the likes of Paul McCartney, Isaac Hayes, Freddie Hubbard, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Sting, The Roots and James Brown. Rosenwinkel quickly became a force on the New York jazz scene as an innovative bandleader, composer and improviser. He has worked as a leader and sideman with the likes of Joe Henderson, Brian Blade, Joshua Redman and Danilo Perez. The full Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will appear with these two great musicians for a night of dense harmonies and gorgeous melodies. Learn More

A pre-concert discussion with JALC’s Ken Druker begins an hour before the concert.
Chances are you know the music of Billy Strayhorn better than his name. Working both as Duke Ellington’s key collaborator and in his own right, Strayhorn was one of the all-time heavyweight composers. He was jazz’s leading romantic, as shown in the tender and sensual “Lush Life” and “Lotus Blossom;” and with “Take the A Train” and “Johnny Come Lately” he wrote some of the hardest-swinging tunes of all time. Your ears will thank you for the rare opportunity to hear Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra play this distinctively gorgeous music. Featuring guest vocalist José James.
Actor Wendell Pierce, from HBO’s The Wire and Treme, and host of Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio, will host the show.
