Big Band Holidays has the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis playing big band holiday favorites. Buy tickets early because these concerts sell out every year.
The concert swings with holiday classics like Count Basie’s “Jingle Bells,” “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” and Billie Holiday’s “I’ve Got my Love to Keep me Warm.” Imagine the entire Time Warner Center swinging to a holiday beat like two holiday dancers once upon a time at the Savoy Ballroom up in Harlem.
Santa is no dummy. He is sure to stop first at the happiest house, which on these days is Jazz at Lincoln Center swinging to Big Band Holidays.
