A Celebration of the Music of Jelly Roll Morton and George Gershwin

  |

Featuring Adam Birnbaum and Cécile McLorin Salvant


Great jazz composers whose lifespans overlapped, Jelly Roll Morton and George Gershwin were masters of the piano whose wide-ranging music captured the promise, energy, and turmoil of the early 20th century. Rising stars of the 21st century, pianist Aaron Diehl and Grammy Award-winning vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant capture "Jelly and George" in an evening that combines lesser-known works of both masters with new arrangements of favorite tunes, all with stunning expressiveness.


PRE-SHOW TALK: Join us at 6:30pm for a conversation with Aaron Diehl and Loren Schoenberg, founding director of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
