LCO premieres new arrangements of McBride and Rosenwinkel’s works Rose Theater, May 23 & 24, 8pm

New York, NY – On May 23–24, Jazz at Lincoln Center presents its second JLCO Hosts concerts featuring a collaborating between the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and two of contemporary jazz’s finest artists. Music director Wynton Marsalis and drummer Ali Jackson present the compositions of a pair of Philadelphia-born, post-Boomer virtuosos— bassist Christian McBride and guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. Associates since the 1980s, both Rosenwinkel and McBride attended Creative and Performing Arts High School in Philadelphia where they expanded their musical network with future Philly greats like Joey DeFrancesco and Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson of The Roots.

Rosenwinkel’s JALC debut will culminate a musical relationship with Jackson that began two decades ago at Smalls in Greenwich Village, where Rosenwinkel refined his individualistic guitar sound and influential compositional concept, blending dense harmonies, gorgeous melodies, and complex forms with, as Jackson states, “a very conscious and present understanding of the blues and what the blues are in jazz music.” 2012 GRAMMY® Award winner McBride will continue a relationship with JALC that began in 1995 (not long after he emerged as an all-time great on his instrument), when Marsalis, whom he met in high school during the latter ‘80s, commissioned him to write “Bluesin’ in Alphabet City.” The full Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra appears. There will be a free pre-concert discussion each night at 7pm. Tickets for JLCO Hosts: Christian McBride and Kurt Rosenwinkel in Rose Theater start at $30. Jazz at Lincoln Center is located at Broadway at 60th Street, New York, New York.
