Jazz at Lincoln Center: Songs We Love
New Mexico Jazz Festival Event
Join us for Program Notes at 6:30 pm, a Q&A with the tour’s music director, Riley Mulherkar, and John Rangel, a Santa Fe-based jazz composer and pianist.
Songs We Love features incredible up-and-coming jazz artists performing classics from the 1920s through the 1950s. Under the musical direction of Riley Mulherkar, vocalists Shenel Jones, Vuyo Sotashe, and Brianna Thomas join an all-star band made up of New York’s rising stars to perform their way through four decades of music.
Beginning with the early blues and jazz of the 1920s and ending in the early 1950s, they’ll perform pieces by icons including Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Judy Garland.
The Jazz at Lincoln Center Presents touring initiative provides an affordable opportunity to present great jazz programming, featuring up-and-coming musicians who have been identified as rising stars by JALC. The initiative also allows for expansion of the mission of JALC “to entertain, enrich and expand a global community for jazz through performance, education, and advocacy.”
For over three decades, Jazz at Lincoln Center has been a leading advocate for jazz, culture, and arts education globally. Under the direction of Wynton Marsalis, Jazz at Lincoln Center has brought the art form of jazz from the heart of New York City to over 446 cities in more than 40 countries.
Nearly 200,000 students participate in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s education programs each year. Todd Stoll Vice President of Education describes the Education department as “the tangible embodiment of our concerts; if performance is the heart of JALC, education is the veins carrying the music to future generations.” Let Freedom Swing, from the renowned education department at JALC is being offered in conjunction with the tour for Santa Fe Schools.
