Earlier this month, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Jazz Alexa Tarantino Quartet performed at MoCA Westport.
The outdoor concert — properly socially distanced, of course — was sold out, and well received.
Turns out, it was just a warm-up act.
On October 2, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet with Wynton Marsalis comes to town. The world-renowned trumpeter and composer — the managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center — is the only artist to win classical and jazz Grammys in the same year. And he’s done it twice.
The Septet’s program — “The Sound of Democracy” — features new music, played in Connecticut for the first time.
Tickets are on sale now (click here). Proceeds support the museum, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
