Jazz at Lincoln Center is one of the most prestigious American cultural institutions. Its mission is to promote jazz at all levels and with a variety of initiatives, from concerts to seminars, from conferences to radio and television programmes. With this vision: “We believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression “. The project took shape in the mid-eighties, and Wynton Marsalis was among the promoters and is now the Artistic Director.

Jazz at Lincoln Center is one of the most prestigious American cultural institutions. Its mission is to promote at all levels and with numerous initiatives: concerts, seminars, conferences, and radio and TV programs. The vision is: “We believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression”. The project was created in the mid-1980s. Wynton Marsalis was among the promoters (winner of the 2019 JazzTimes Readers’ Poll as Artist of the Year) and is now the Artistic Director.

Wynton’s return to Umbria Jazz, where he has been present from the first steps of his extraordinary career, is always an event, especially with an absolutely out of the ordinary formation like the JALCO.
