 Led by Wynton Marsalis, this remarkably versatile orchestra performs a vast repertoire ranging from original compositions and commissioned works to rare historic compositions and masterworks by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Fletcher Henderson, Thelonious Monk, Mary Lou Williams, Dizzy Gillespie, Benny Goodman, Charles Mingus, and many others.  The JLCO has been the Jazz at Lincoln Center resident orchestra since 1988, performing and leading educational events in New York, across the United States, and around the globe.  The JLCO has been voted best Big Band in the annual DownBeat Readers’ Poll for the past four years (2013–2016).
