Here is the opening jazz schedule at Lincoln Center. Note that ticket prices
range from $10 to $150 and some performances are already sold out. I guess
"jazz oblivious" audiences are willing to pay a reasonable price for the
music, after all.
Perhaps a good reason for OKOMers to consider raising their prices?
Concerts that are part of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Grand Opening Festival
will run Monday, October 18 through Friday Nov. 5 in the new halls of Jazz
at Lincoln Center, on the fifth floor of the Time Warner Center, Broadway
and 60th Street, Manhattan: they are the Rose Theater, the Allen Room and
Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola. The opening night, on Monday, October 18, at 8, will
feature three simultaneous performances in the three spaces. Check your PBS
TV listings for broadcast times.
Attendance is by invitation only, but parts of each concert will be
broadcast live on PBS, as part of "Live From Lincoln Center," as well as on
National Public Radio (WBGO-FM, 88.3) and wbgo.org. Performing that evening
will be the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Tony
Bennett, Abbey Lincoln and others in the Rose Theater; the Afro-Latin Jazz
Orchestra with Paquito D'Rivera in the Allen Room; and the Bill Charlap
Trio, with Frank Wess, in Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola.
A gala on Wednesday night at 7 in the Rose Theater, featuring the Lincoln
Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and special guests, is sold out.
A Dizzy Gillespie Festival will run from Oct. 21 through Nov. 7 in Dizzy's
Club Coca-Cola, featuring the Bill Charlap Trio, Mr. D'Rivera and others;
unless otherwise noted, the club's cover is $30 with a $10 minimum at
tables, $5 at the bar. Some festival shows are sold out; returned tickets
may be available an hour before the performance. Unless otherwise noted,
