Revered as one of the greatest jazz drummers of all time, Max Roach was among the first to use music to address racial, political, and social issues of his time. With legendary musican and bandleader Wynton Marsalis at the helm, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performs Max Roach Centennial, a celebration of this pioneering master musician whose music spanned a diverse range of styles and influenced generations to follow.

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra has been the resident orchestra for Jazz at Lincoln Center since 1988. Comprising 15 of the finest jazz soloists and ensemble players today, they spend over a third of the year on tour.

Under Music Director Wynton Marsalis, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra perform a vast repertoire, from rare historic compositions to commissioned works. They perform and lead educational events around the globe—in concert halls, dance venues, jazz clubs, and public parks; and alongside symphony orchestras, ballet troupes, local students, and an ever-expanding roster of guest artists.
