The world premiere of Beyond Black Codes featuring big band arrangements of songs from Wynton Marsalis’s highly influential small group albums will open Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2023-24 season on Sept. 21-23, 2023, at 8:00pm in Rose Theater.
Jazz at Lincoln Center’s opening weekend concerts will draw from small-group Marsalis classics including Black Codes (From the Underground)—which was inducted into the 2023 class of the National Recording Registry— The Magic Hour; Standard Time Vol 2: Intimacy Calling; and other records including five albums re-issued digitally today via Blue Engine Records. These concerts will feature the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis performing works that reflect Marsalis’s communitarian and intersectional concerns. Pre-concert lectures with Seton Hawkins, Jazz at Lincoln Center Director of Education Resources and Public Programming, will delve into the history of Marsalis’ small groups and explore their musical impact.
Following opening weekend at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will tour Beyond Black Codes throughout the U.S. from Sept. 26-Oct. 8, 2023. See below for complete tour dates.
Rose Theater in Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, is located on Broadway at 60th Street in New York, NY.

As part of the events ushering in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 36th season, Blue Engine Records—the organization’s in-house label— today re-issues five Marsalis albums: The Magic Hour; Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson; Live at the House of Tribes; From the Plantation to the Penitentiary; and He and She. Originally recorded in the 2000s, these five albums—which earned some of the best reviews of the award-winning trumpeter’s career—have been remastered for their return to streaming platforms. Listen now:
Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2023-24 season focuses on the concept of community; the broader community of jazz; the numerous communities that nurtured its master practitioners across its timeline; the communities of consciousness that influenced these practitioners; the music’s power to bridge divides and coalesce these distinct communities; and the role of jazz – and the arts writ large – in maintaining the human connection in the digital era. Throughout its 2023-24 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center explores these subjects with concerts featuring the forward-thinking composers, virtuosic improvisers, and ingenious conceptualists that populate the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. Implicitly or explicitly, season concerts, education programs, advocacy initiatives, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra tours directly evoke themes that illuminate, as Managing and Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis puts it, the notion that, “Our music has the exceptional ability to bring people together.”
The organization’s 36th season runs from Sept. 21, 2023 to June 8, 2024 in Rose Theater, The Appel Room, and Dizzy’s Club – all at Frederick P. Rose Hall, the home of Jazz at Lincoln Center, located on Broadway at 60th Street in New York, NY. In addition to 24 unique live concerts throughout Frederick P. Rose Hall and more than 350 nights of music at Dizzy’s Club, the organization will offer webcast performances via the Jazz Live app, in-person and virtual education programs, and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis tour dates worldwide.
