Published: 2012-03-07
John Coltrane The highlights of Jazz at Lincoln Center's 2012-13 programming season will include six separate mini-festivals dedicated to major jazz figures, styles and institutions of the past and present, the organization announced Tuesday.

The festivals will focus on John Coltrane; Duke Ellington; Chick Corea; Blue Note records; the idea of the “cool" as traced through Gerry Mulligan, John Lewis and the Modern Jazz Quartet; and the bebop of Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Each festival will include large-cast concerts in Rose Theater and smaller ensembles in the Allen Room.

Also on the schedule: “My Audio Biography," a retrospective concert by Bobby McFerrin, with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (Sept. 13 to 15); a collaboration between the Bad Plus and the guitarist Bill Frisell (April 12 and 13, 2013); a performance of “Blood on the Fields," the 1994 oratorio written by Wynton Marsalis, the organization's artistic director (Feb. 21 to 23, 2013); major concerts built around the Latin-jazz pianist Eddie Palmieri (Dec. 14 and 15) and the harmonica player Toots Thielemans (Sept. 28 and 29); a performance of Mr. Marsalis's “Swing Symphony," for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic (May 31 and June 1, 2013); a special program by the singer Kurt Elling about the work of Brill Building songwriters (Oct. 12 and 13); concerts by Branford Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Marcus Roberts and James Cotton; and a New Year's Eve swing dance party at the Allen Room.

As in the past, Michael Feinstein will program and host “Jazz and Popular Song" concerts in the Allen Room; the Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition and Festival will introduce newly transcribed Ellington charts to competing bands; and the “Jazz for Young People" concerts will continue, including programs on John Coltrane and Latin jazz.
