“Takes big-band playing to new heights of virtuosity.” The Times
Led by consummate jazz master Marsalis, the JLCO is made up of 15 of today’s most versatile and polished musicians, each able to soar in inventive solos then merge into a soulful, swinging ensemble sound. The Hop program includes a celebration of New Orleans legend Jelly Roll Morton (1890-1941), a composer, intellect and pianist who indelibly shaped New Orleans history and jazz.
Post-performance discussion with the artists
Funded in part by the Class of 1961 Legacy: The American Tradition in Performance Fund.
Made up of 15 of today’s most versatile, polished musicians, each able to soar in inventive solos then merge into a soulful, swinging ensemble sound, the JLCO program includes a celebration of New Orleans legend Jelly Roll Morton (1890-1941). Jazz’s first great composer, intellect and piano virtuoso, Morton gave us the musical blueprint of New Orleans and jazz as we know it today. This is JLCO’s fourth visit to the Hop.
