Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis Blue Engine Tour to Hit 15 Cities

By Matt Micucci


From February 4 to March 12, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will be performing in 15 international cities, as part of their 2016 Blue Engine International Tour, named after Jazz at Lincoln Orchestra’s new label Blue Engine Records.


The tour will touch down in France, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Austria, Luxembourg, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.


The orchestra will be performing more than 75 arrangements and original compositions by its members and their contemporaries. These include new arrangements of classic Blue Note Records selections by Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson and Lee Morgan, as well as tunes by Thelonious Monk and pop music songs from artists such as Stevie Wonder, The Beatles and Elton John.


Some of the highlights of the tour include the London performance, in which the orchestra will be joined by saxophonist Wayne Shorter to play some of his compositions, and the Australian and New Zealand premieres of Marsalis’ Symphony No.3, titled “Swing Orchestra.”


The Blue Engine Tour will feature education programs and residencies at the Barbican Centre in London and the New Zealand Festival in Wellington. In Wellington, in addition to master classes and open rehearsals, the orchestra will perform its signature concert, “Jazz For Young People: Who Is Duke Ellington?”
