The JLCO featured the music of pianist Mulgrew Miller, and the music of saxophonist Kenny Garrett, featuring Kenny Garrett. Miller and Garrett’s paths intersected during tenures with Mercer Ellington, Woody Shaw, and Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. As usual, it was an honor to perform this music with the unique sound and sensibility of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.
The jazz community was saddened by the loss of Mulgrew Miller in May 2013. The JLCO with Wynton Marsalis performed these concerts in honor of Mulgrew Miller.
