The subject of this family concert is "Jazz Meets Gospel," in which the dynamic young pianist and conductor Damien Sneed explores the deep and soulful connections between these two iconic genres, drawing on the music of giants such as Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and Wynton Marsalis to demonstrate how the styles have been combined to create important works. Sneed also appears in Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration in Rose Theater, October 24-26. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=135908 Jazz at Lincoln Center Jazz at Lincoln Center
