Jazz at Lincoln Center entertains, enriches and expands a global community for jazz through performance, education and advocacy. They believe jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression. Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2022-23 season illuminates, actualizes and reaffirms the notion of jazz as a global language and the music’s power to bridge divides and coalesce distinct communities. Throughout their first full season since 2019, they present forward-thinking musicians, virtuosic practitioners and ingenious conceptualists from Africa, the Middle East, East Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and North America at the House of Swing, exploring jazz as a medium for cultural exchange.
Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2023-24 concert season focuses on community—the community that, over the past century and a half, jazz has built by touching millions of people all over the world. That global community has nurtured and influenced the music’s master practitioners, bridged divides and united polarized communities and maintained human connection—indeed, maintained our humanity itself—in an increasingly digital, atomized era.
Jazz at Lincoln Center continues to offer all new programs, online everyday. Access concerts, educational programs and discussions on their website.
