Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra Performs Unreleased, Unrecorded Music at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Allen Room March 14 and 15

After more than a decade-long absence, Maria Schneider will return to Jazz at Lincoln Center with a performance of previously unreleased, unrecorded music.

A multi-Grammy-winning composer, arranger, bandleader and Upper West Side native, Schneider brings her internationally acclaimed Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra to JALC's Allen Room on March 14 to 15.

"Majestic," "magical," "evocative" and "beyond categorization," Schneider's music has been lauded by critics ever since her last 2003 performance at JALC's Alice Tully Hall.

JALC couldn't do any better with this program. Schneider finds a way to blend her grizzled senses with the modern jazz ensemble--in a way that channels idiosyncrasy from each member's playing.

Much like Duke Ellington used to do back in his Washington, D.C. days.

Other accolades for Schneider, you ask? Her Concert in the Garden album was the first to win a Grammy via digi-sales only (as well as being one of the few decent albums to be produced via ArtistShare, a fan-funding bsite).

If you're in the mood for her mystique, reserve a date with Schneider at the Allen Room. The concert takes place March 14-15 at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

Respectively, indeed. Tickets start at $45 and can be purchased over at JALC's website.

Until then, here's Schneider's fuller ensemble performing at the Vienna Jazz Festival back in 2008.
