Kings of Crescent City

New Orleans native Victor Goines, the superlative clarinetist-saxophonist with the JLCO for the last two decades, leads an all-star ensemble featuring trumpeters Marcus Printup and Kenny Rampton, trombonist Chris Crenshaw, banjoist Don Vappie, bassist Reginald Veal, and drummer Adonis Rose through a celebration of four of the founding fathers of jazz - Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, Jelly Roll Morton, and King Oliver - whose early immersion in the musical culture of the Crescent City directly informed their musical production throughout their brilliant careers. The New Orleans language is similarly in the DNA of JALC's programmatic and philosophical identity of the past 25 years, as Goines and his cohorts will masterfully demonstrate.

Free pre-concert discussion with Victor Goines, nightly at 7pm.
