Jazz at Lincoln Center

Jazz at Lincoln Center (JLC) is a constituent of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Inc., whose performing arts complex, Frederick P. Rose Hall, is located at 60th Street and Broadway in New York City, slightly south of the main Lincoln Center campus and directly adjacent to Columbus Circle. Frederick P. Rose Hall is housed inside of the Time Warner Center. The complex opened in October 2004. The complex was designed by acclaimed architect, Rafael Viñoly and constructed by Turner Construction Company.

Overview

JLC's Frederick P. Rose Hall consists of three main music performance venues:

* Rose Theater, with 1,233 seats.
* The Allen Room, with 483 seats, featuring a 50 by 90-foot window overlooking Central Park.
* Dizzy's Club "Coca-Cola", with 140 seats, an intimate jazz club named after the famous jazz artist Dizzy Gillespie.

The hall also contains the Irene Diamond Education Center with rehearsal and recording rooms and the Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame (NEJHF), a multimedia installation featuring an 18-foot video wall, interactive computer kiosks and touch-activated virtual plaques. Visitors can celebrate the lives, artistry and music of the jazz greats so integral to the art form and industry. JLC also launched a website based on the NEJHF.

Wynton Marsalis serves as the Artistic Director and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis (JLCO) serves as the resident orchestra performing at Frederick P. Rose Hall and around the world.

JLC produces a year-round schedule of performance, education and broadcast events for audiences of all ages. These productions include concerts, national and international tours, residencies, weekly national radio and television programs, recordings, publications, an annual high school jazz band competition and festival, a band director academy, a jazz appreciation curriculum for children, advanced training through the Juilliard Institute for Jazz Studies, music publishing, children’s concerts, lectures, adult education courses and student and educator workshops. Jazz at Lincoln Center will produce nearly 3,000 events during its 2007-08 season.

JLC educational mission encompasses 22 programs and resources that reach upwards of 50,000 people directly and an estimated four million people through curricula, print music and online re­sources. Beginning at just eight months old, little ones can swing, stomp and shuffle with "WeBop!". Families and school groups delight in the "Jazz for Young People concert series" and "Jazz in the Schools" tours that bring professional ensembles across NYC. Teachers across the country bring these concerts back to their classrooms with the "Jazz for Young People" Curriculum and make connections between jazz and American history with "NEA Jazz in the Schools". JLC also streams their education events online.

JLC's educational programs include the Middle School Jazz Academy, a tuition-free instructional program for NYC students. And for the past 13 years, the Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition and Festival has supported high school jazz bands nationwide. There is also a summer "Band Director Academy", customized teacher training workshops and a print music library.

At Frederick P. Rose Hall adults can develop their listening skills and delve into jazz history at "Swing University", "Jazz Talk" and the Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame.

Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame

The hall is named for the late Nesuhi Ertegun, one of the founders of Atlantic Records, which released records by Coltrane and Mingus, among other important jazz figures. A 60-person international voting panel, which includes musicians, scholars and educators from 17 countries, is charged to nominate and select "the most definitive artists in the history of jazz for induction into the Hall of Fame".
