Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Over four nights, Lincoln Center Festival celebrates at the work of avant-jazz pioneer Ornette Coleman, who died in 2015. The first event is a screening of David Cronenberg’s hallucinatory William S. Burroughs adaptation Naked Lunch with a live performance of its Coleman-performed score. On July 12, the fest hosts a screening of 1985 documentary Ornette: Made in America. On June 14, band members and special guests reunite Coleman's jazz-fusion project Prime Time. And on June 16, members of Ensemble Signal explore Coleman's classical-music legacy, performing his chamber works.
