Jazz at Lincoln Center will hold a residency during the 2024 Blue Note Jazz Festival in which trumpeter Wynton Marsalis performs six nights at the Blue Note Jazz Club from June 11 to June 16. The performances mark a historic collaboration as Marsalis, managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, headlines the Blue Note for the first time since 1991, and these two iconic New York cultural centers unite.

Tickets are on sale now for the upcoming residency, which features the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performing June 11–13 (click HERE for tickets), and Wynton Marsalis with Future of Jazz Septet on June 14–16 (click HERE for tickets).

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Big Band, directed by Julius Tolentino, perform on June 15, and the award-winning Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Orchestra, directed by Tatum Greenblatt, perform on June 16.
