The official title for this event is “Jazz in the Key of Life: Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.” It’s sort of a “pops” approach, which “brings classic favorites to the stage with fresh energy” while “revisiting the hits of Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway, and more.” Marsalis is a divisive figure in the jazz community; even the swiftest read of his collaborative documentary on the music’s history with Ken Burns will ask “Hey, where is all the spiritual and free improve stuff here,” but that’s also nothing new as he was a firebrand figure from the get-go. If you love him, you’ve probably already bought a ticket.
