The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis celebrates one of jazz’s great original geniuses: composer, Pulitzer Prize winner, and alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman (1930–2015). 2017 Grammy Award-winning composer, arranger, saxophonist, and bandleader Ted Nash serves as music director for the evening, utilizing the Orchestra’s many colors to bring this music to life.
One of the all-time best melodists regardless of musical tradition, Ornette Coleman left a profound body of work that demands ongoing exploration.

The U.K. dates being recorded begin April 15 in Manchester and run through April 21 in London.
“I’m excited to have fans hear the stripped down ferocity and emotion of the live show,” Smith said. “We are an anomaly in today’s music scene by performing raw, with no bullshit, no smoke and mirrors, no effects, no backing tracks, no click tracks, and no loops. We are simply three guys, playing our respective instruments with our hearts and our sweat. Each night comes with its own set of unique mistakes and triumphs. I do feel a bit exposed by recording and releasing these rough mixes but, it is what it is, and that’s been my ethos all along. Keep it honest and real.”
