Update for Jazz at Lincoln Center

I received an unfortunate (but realistic, based on current events) email from Jazz at Lincoln Center, which states: “Over the last few months, we have explored all options that would allow us to proceed with the 2020-21 concert season while also ensuring the safety of our audiences, performers, and staff. We have arrived at the difficult decision to cancel all events through December 20, 2020, as well as select concerts slated for 2021.”

I’ve been seeing that various museums in NYC are opening back up, but I guess that’s a different situation, as people can move freely and with social distance at a museum, where one is seated in a static position in a concert hall at Lincoln Center.

But I suppose, rather than dwell on what we can’t do, we should look into what we can do – and here’s a link to Jazz at Lincoln Center’s YouTube channel. And check this out, here’s a two hour concert – in its entirety – “The Music of Miles Davis; The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.” The concert features Miles Davis’ music from the 1940s–60s, including arrangements from “Birth of the Cool,” showcasing the unconventional brass instrumentation that gave it its unique sound.
