JLCO Hosts: Mulgrew Miller & Kenny Garrett at Jazz at Lincoln Center

For the first of two "Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Hosts" concerts of the 2013-14 season, JLCO trombonists Chris Crenshaw and Vincent Gardner turn their attention to the music of pianist Mulgrew Miller and saxophonist Kenny Garrett, whose paths intersected during tenures with Mercer Ellington, Woody Shaw, and Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers. As both masters have primarily focused on small ensembles in presenting their respective voices over the last two decades (Miller with the Wingspan combo; Garrett in quartet and trio contexts after a long run with Miles Davis), it will be fascinating to hear them interact with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis' unique sound and sensibility.
