Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
- Jazz at Lincoln Center’s claim to fame: it opened “the world’s first venue designed specifically for jazz”
- Number of musicians in its orchestra: 15
- Their leader: Artistic Director and trumpeter extraordinaire, Wynton Marsalis
- Number of Grammy Awards Marsalis has earned: 9
- Other notable achievement: winning the Pulitzer Prize for Music—the only jazz musician ever to do so—for 1997’s Blood On The Fields
- His sound: a fusion of jazz, post-bop, and classical
- Where you’ve heard this unconventional blend: in the halls of Juilliard; when he played alongside Dizzy Gillespie; on PBS’ Marsalis on Music, an educational program that, contrary to popular belief, didn’t feature Marsalis sitting on a stack of sheet music for two hours
- How Washington Post describes the show: “A blazing trumpet section, a swinging alto saxophone…and sizzling trumpet.”
National Black Arts Festival
Maya Angelou, Spike Lee, Gladys Knight, and the O’Jays: these are just a handful of the many artists who’ve descended upon National Black Arts Festival since its inception in 1988. The festival has invited each of them to appear due to its mission—to celebrate the contributions of artists of African descent then, in turn, inspire its guests to create art of their own. And the inspiration is palpable, from jazz concerts led by Wynton Marsalis to literary readings, dance performances, theatrical productions, and visual art displays throughout the year.
