Hi all,

WOW is right.  This is an incredible project.  If you go to the NY Times Web 
site, there's a picture taken in the smaller theatre.  The back drop is just 
a huge picture window overlooking New York.  What a great way to see a jazz 
concert, with the lights of Manhattan twinkling in the background.  The way 
this center was constructed and thought out makes it possible to present 
jazz in so many different ways.    In addition, the site is right on 
Columbus Circle in a new double-tower skyscraper with shopping, restaurants, 
businesses etc.  I walked by there a few weeks back--it's in an excellent 
happening high-profile location.  There's also a large stylish Jazz at 
Lincoln Center sign over the entrance.

Regardless of what you think about Wynton's perspective, this is a big thing 
and would never have happened without him.  Also, as shown in the article, 
the artistic vision there is becoming more diverse.

All the best,
Rob McCallum
