End Time: 8:30 PM
Description:
 We're excited to team up with the Jazz at Lincoln Center education department to present free rebroadcasts of selected live performances from this season, featuring the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and a local Jazz Ambassador.

The February concert is "Blood On The Fields." Come and be a part of music history. In 1997, Wynton Marsalis became the first Jazz artist to receive a Pulitzer Prize in music, thanks to his landmark oratorio Blood on the Fields. An ambitious, sprawling work that explores themes of slavery and freedom, Blood on the Fields cemented Marsalisí space as one of the most innovative and ambitious composers in Jazz today, taking his cues from other genre-defying artists like Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus.

First premiered well before the creation of Jazz at Lincoln Centerís home, the piece finally received its Rose Theater debut in 2013. Baritone Gregory Porter, scat-singing legend Kenny Washington, and contralto Paula West join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in this remarkable, ground-breaking work.
