Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO) spreads holiday cheer with its annual Big Band Holidays tour. Don’t miss National Endowment for the Arts “Jazz Master” and five-time Grammy winning vocalist DIANNE REEVES and sensational 22-year-old jazz vocalist SAMARA JOY, winner of the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and newly Grammy-nominated, who is poised to join the ranks with Reeves, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday in legendary status.
The world premiere collaboration will feature soulful renditions of holiday classics, playful improvisation, and enjoyable storytelling. Audiences of all ages will surely have lasting memories of this show throughout the holiday season - and far longer.
