Two exciting big bands will bring the Mondavi Center to life this summer: Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and Pink Martini.

The performances, presented as “just added” events, will be held in the Mondavi Center’s Jackson Hall on the UC Davis campus.

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will perform on Saturday, June 18, and Pink Martini will perform on Tuesday, July 5.

“Jackson Hall has traditionally been quiet over the summer, but a first visit to the Mondavi Center by the extraordinary Pink Martini, and a return engagement by Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, always a favorite, were too good to pass up,” said Jeremy Ganter, associate executive director and director of programming for the Mondavi Center. “Each, in their own way, will make for a fitting coda to a great season and will help usher in the summer in high style.”

Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra is comprised of 15 of the finest jazz soloists and ensemble players today, and has been the Jazz at Lincoln Center resident orchestra since 1988.

Drawing from an extensive repertoire that includes original compositions by Wynton Marsalis, Ted Nash and other members of the group, the Orchestra is critically acclaimed, including being hailed as “the greatest large jazz ensemble working today” by the Chicago Tribune.

An accomplished trumpeter, composer and jazz statesman, Marsalis is the artistic director and bandleader of Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. His prominent position in American culture was solidified in April 1997, when he became the first jazz artist to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in music for his work Blood on the Fields, which was commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center.

Genre-hopping and über-hip, Pink Martini brings its excellent blend of cosmopolitan sounds to the Mondavi Center from the hometown of Portland, Oregon.

The 12 musicians of Pink Martini draw inspiration from, jazz, classical, old fashioned pop and the romantic Hollywood musicals of the 1940s and 50s with a more global perspective. As Pink Martini bandleader and pianist Thomas Lauderdale said, “If the United Nations had a house band in 1962, then hopefully we’d be that band.” Their latest album, “Splendour in the Grass,” is a virtual carnival of musical influences, with one grand purpose: to rebuild a culture that sings and dances.

“Just Added” concerts augment the Mondavi Center’s 2010-11 season of more than 90 performances, featuring the best in classical, dance, speakers, jazz, and cultural programs.

Tickets are available  at the Mondavi Center Ticket Office at 866-754-2787 and online at MondaviArts.org.
