The JLCO with Wynton Marsalis performs Jazz in the Key of Life, a concert featuring the most skillfully crafted and sophisticated songs in popular music from the 1960s to today, revisiting the hits of Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway, among others. The show features JLCO lead trombonist and crooner Vincent Gardner. For music fans new to jazz, this concert is an opportunity to hear familiar melodies with fresh ears, and fans of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra already know that they can arrange any material for big band, make it swing hard, and lace it with mind-blowing improvisation.
