Diane Schuur Sings Basie
Nov

7:00 PM19:00

Diane Schuur Sings Basie

Diane Schuur (AKA “Deedles”) is a singer, pianist, and all-around entertainer with a big voice and an even bigger personality. Tonight she’ll be performing tunes from Diane Schuur & The Count Basie Orchestra, her classic album that topped the Billboard jazz charts for nearly a year and earned Schuur her second Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance.

With big arrangements, infectious riffs, and exuberant call and response, Basie’s music is a cornerstone jazz style that’s irresistible in live settings. Part of Basie’s lasting popularity also comes from his iconic series of Basie singers, a lineage in which Schuur follows Ella Fitzgerald by less than a decade.

Schuur’s charts are the real deal too, and tonight the Riley Mulherkar Big Band will be playing the authentic, original Count Basie arrangements that always brought the house down. Schuur has often worked with leaders of previous generations, like Ray Charles and Stan Getz, and she now joins a leader of tomorrow in this new multi-generational pairing. Mulherkar’s energetic young big band continues the Basie tradition of bringing a party to the concert hall, and the group is a perfect fit for a powerhouse vocalist like Schuur. Together they will bring Basie’s unstoppable swing to The Appel Room through songs such as “Everyday (I Have the Blues),” “Them There Eyes,” “You Can Have It,” and “Deedles’ Blues.”

JLCO with Wynton Marsalis - Celebrating Ornette Coleman

  • Jazz at Lincoln Center - Rose Theater (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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). One of the all-time best melodists – regardless of musical tradition – this groundbreaking visionary left us with a profound body of work that demands ongoing exploration. With virtuosic big band arrangements of seminal works like “Una Muy Bonita,” “Lonely Woman,” and “Peace,” the Orchestra will foray deep into Coleman’s incomparable musical world. 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. When we last presented Ornette Coleman, he was amazed by the JLCO’s playing. Tonight, the band will revel in this most sophisticated and universally-beloved music, using Coleman’s singular melodies and rich thematic material as a foundation for spellbinding new interpretations.
