Lincoln Center Moments

Benny Goodman and Beyond with Ken Peplowski

Jazz at Lincoln Center presents world-renowned clarinetist and saxophonist Ken Peplowski in a new exploration inspired by the small group music of Benny Goodman. While Goodman is well known for leading one of the most swinging orchestras of the big band era, his small group recordings featured creative arrangements, showcased virtuosos on new, and famously integrated jazz on the concert stage years before Jackie Robinson integrated baseball. For this special concert, Ken and an all-star ensemble of New York’s top jazz artists infuse their own voices into this unique format.
