Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis

Feb. 5 Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis Holland Performing Arts Center, 1200 Douglas St. 8 p.m., Tickets $25-$95 345.0606, ticketomaha.com Standing on the shoulders of jazz giants like Armstrong and Ellington, Wynton Marsalis has helped institutionalize the indigenous American art form of jazz. The founder and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and the music director for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Marsalis has transcended his award-winning, critically-lauded contributions as a trumpet master, composer and bandleader to become jazz’s leading educator and advocate. His concert performances with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra harken to the heyday of big bands, yet remain wholly contemporary. Cool out to a repertoire that spans the entire jazz idiom. The New York Times has called Marsalis “the high priest of jazz” and the Daily Telegraph has anointed the orchestra “the finest big band in the world today.”
