The JLCO has put forth a vast, innovative body of original work over the past decade, and for two nights in Rose Theater they will treat audiences to a collection of their best compositions. From current JLCO members like Victor Goines, Ted Nash, Chris Crenshaw, Ali Jackson, Carlos Henriquez, Vincent Gardner, and Wynton Marsalis to past members and special guests like Wycliffe Gordon and Christian McBride, the JLCO songbook includes some of the finest and most stylistically diverse big band music in history. Such variety and uniformly high quality is a rare achievement for any band, but no other group has ever had 11 composers and arrangers of this level in its ranks. The JLCO composers’ thematic ambitions, distinctive musical personalities, and unprecedented range make their repertoire a particularly potent demonstration of big band jazz’s limitless potential.
