Songs We Love , a journey through the first 50 years of jazz song, is presented by Jazz at Lincoln Center under the musical direction of trombonist Mariel Bildsten. Three guest vocalists will join an all-star band made up of New York’s rising stars discovered by Wynton Marsalis. Combining their distinct talents, the group will sing their way through four decades of music, beginning with the early blues and jazz of the 1920s and ending in the early 1950s. Iconic singers to be explored include Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland. Songs We Love was first presented as the 2016 Season Opener at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
