Wyn­ton Marsalis, di­rec­tor of the 15-piece Jazz at Lin­coln Cen­ter Or­ches­tra, has de­clared jazz the mu­sic of democ­racy. In­deed, thanks to the magic of ar­range­ment and im­pro­vi­sa­tion, free­dom rings as the JLCO brings clas­sic jazz num­bers squarely into the present. Marsalis, known as a trum­pet vir­tu­oso since his emer­gence from New Or­leans in the band of drum­mer Art Blakey in the 1980s, has stocked the band with equally tal­ented mu­si­cians who span gen­er­a­tions. When the JLCO counts down on the stage of the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) on Tues­day, Sept. 29, at 7:30 p.m., it’s sched­uled to have re­spected trum­peters Ryan Kisor and Mar­cus Printup, scin­til­lat­ing alto sax­o­phon­ist Sher­man Irby, ver­sa­tile drum­mer Ali Jack­son, and the most trav­eled of the lot, eighty-six-year-old bari­tone sax­o­phon­ist Joe Tem­per­ley, among other greats on the bandstand. Call 505-988-1234 for ticket avail­abil­ity. — Bill Kohlhaase
