The Music of Mulgrew Miller & Kenny Garrett

Date: 
Monday, August 11, 2014 - 6:00pm

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis celebrates the "soulful erudition" of the late pianist Mulgrew Miller and the "taut, molten" music of saxophonist Kenny Garrett. Miller's untimely passing in May, 2013 turned this concert partially into a tribute, with the JLCO premiering new arrangements of both his and Garrett's compositions. Garrett performs, with arrangements by Chris Crenshaw and Vincent Gardner. Wendell Pierce hosts.

Father of the Mambo: The Music of Cachao Lopez

Date:

"Mambo," translated from Kikongo (the Creole language of Cuba), means "conversation with the gods." With Afro-Cuban rhythms and other notes from this divine conversation, Cuban bassist "Cachao" Lopez (and his brother) enlightened the jazz world and brought forth the mambo. Led by bassist Carlos Henriquez, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra rocks Rose Theater with the ultimate "discarga" jam session, in honor of the late "Cachao." Wendell Pierce hosts.
