New York, NY--Jazz at Lincoln Center continues to celebrate the jazz cities of America with a special concert series entitled Los Angeles: Central Avenue Breakdown featuring the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis on February 23-25 at 8pm at Frederick P. Rose Hall on Broadway at 60th St. in New York City. Gerald Wilson, who arranged music for Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Count Basie, leads the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra in this celebration, joined by fellow Los Angeles natives Plas Johnson, the sultry tenor sax voice of Mancini's “Pink Panther" theme. Tickets are $30, $50, $75, $100, $130 and available at the Jazz at Lincoln Center box office on Broadway at 60th St., by calling CenterCharge at (212) 721-6500 or via www.jalc.org. Time Warner Inc. is the lead corporate sponsor of this performance.



Known for being exceptionally light and relaxed in feeling, thoughtful and uncluttered in conception, a style of Los Angeles jazz that emerged in the 1940s was called “cool." The music gained popularity in the '50s, and was made famous by composers such as Charles Mingus, Chet Baker, and Gerry Mulligan. Together, the LINCOLN CENTER JAZZ ORCHESTRA and guest artists GERALD WILSON and PLAS JOHNSON will explore the lyrical style of Los Angeles jazz.



For the rare opportunity to get inside the hearts and minds of some of today's greatest jazz artists, Jazz at Lincoln Center announces Master Class: From Bebop to Big Band Featuring Gerald Wilson, the legendary arranger and composer. Mr. Wilson will discuss and demonstrate technique used to arrange small group music for big band and The Juilliard Jazz Orchestra will perform. The class takes place on February 25, 2006 at 2pm in the Irene Diamond Education Center at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall on Broadway at 60th Street. Tickets are $10 and are available at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall box office on Broadway at 60th St. which is open Monday - Saturday, 10am-8:30pm and Sunday 11am-8:30pm.
