Aficionados of America’s original art form, rejoice: The 2010 season of Jazz at Lincoln Center commences Saturday, September 25 with Opening Night at Jazz at Lincoln Center: An Evening with Roy Haynes, in the iconic venue’s Rose Theater at 8 p.m.

One of jazz’s indisputable masters, Roy Haynes began with an apprenticeship with Charlie Parker and Sarah Vaughan and matured into the rhythmic pulse on countless classic recordings. A brilliant bandleader and nurturer of young talent, the drummer has enjoyed a celebrated career that spans decades. The opening concert features this legendary and ever-stylish Grammy-winner in two settings: with his own current Fountain of Youth Band and with an all-star supergroup including saxophonist Kenny Garrett, pianist Danilo Perez, bassist Dave Holland, and trumpeter Wynton Marsalis.

Thanks to the support of St. Regis Hotels & Resorts and The Coca-Cola Company, ticket holders will receive a complimentary, exclusive CD entitled Timeless is Modern, a compilation of 21 jazz standards curated by Wynton Marsalis and performed by the acclaimed Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.  Audience members are also invited to enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne at intermission, courtesy of Chandon and hosted by St. Regis Hotels & Resorts.

Tickets Start at $30. Buy tickets now or call 212.721.6500 for more information.
