Jazz at Lincoln Center PRESENTS invites you to celebrate the Great American Songbook in all of its playful — and sophisticated — glory, brought to life by two of New York’s brightest young artists and a quartet of jazz all-stars.

Boasting prodigious trumpet talent and vocal charm, Bria Skonberg and Benny Benack III will re-imagine some of the classic partnerships in jazz and popular song, including Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Bing Crosby, and Dean Martin and Peggy Lee.

Featuring songs by Gershwin, Ellington, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and many more, this will be an “unforgettable” evening of singin’ and swingin’!

For over three decades, Jazz at Lincoln Center, under the direction of Wynton Marsalis, has been a leading advocate for jazz, culture and arts education. The Jazz at Lincoln Center PRESENTS touring initiative features up-and-coming musicians who have been identified as rising stars by Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Bria Skonberg: Trumpet, Vocals, Co-Music Director
Benny Benack III: Trumpet, Vocals, Co-Music Director

Jocelyn Gould: Guitar
Jon Thomas: Piano
Charles Goold: Drums
Mark Lewandowski: Bass
