Jazz in the 1950s oscillated between cool, hot, and hard bop. But none of those labels satisfied Stan Kenton, who instead called his jazz ‘progressive.’ In the 40s he had a hit-making big band before he introduced the jazz world to his 40-piece orchestra, which featured such jazz stars as Lee Konitz. In this celebration of Kenton’s Centennial, Konitz joins the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis as they revisit the time when one jazz musician knew exactly where he was going: strictly forward.

Free pre-concert discussion nightly at 7pm.
