Maria Schneider Orchestra - Jazz at Lincoln Center
The Allen Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th St. - 212-721-6500
New York, NY 10019
Description: "Maria Schneider is a chance-taker who has complete control over what she does, and has her own voice," the late Bob Brookmeyer once said of the two-time Grammy Award winner, who presents her 17-member collective, comprised of New York A-listers, for her first Jazz at Lincoln Center appearance since 2003. As always, the eminent composer-arranger will present lyrical and intricately woven pieces highlighted with ravishing instrumental colors and textures, threaded together with a harmonic language that embeds the soloists into her sonic world while allowing their stylistic idiosyncrasies to flourish.
