Presented by Overture Center

The musical dawn of jazz from the strands of New Orleans history took hold in 1916. A celebration of Jazz 100 honors the birthdays of greats Thelonius Monk, Dizzy Gillespie, Ella Fitzgerald and Mongo Santamaria—all born in the glorious year of 1917. Under the musical direction of Danilo Perez (a former pianist for Dizzy Gillespie), Chris Potter (tenor), Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Wycliffe Gordon (trombone), vocalist Lizz Wright and an A-list rhythm section rounds out the lineup.
