Who/What: Bandleader, composer and drummer Matt Wilson hosts the final concert of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2009-10 season, Jazz for Young People: “What is Free Jazz?” Wilson and his quartet demonstrate how, in the free form jazz pioneered by Ornette Coleman and others in the 1960s, musicians play with rhythm and melody, pitch and volume, and the other basic elements of music. Families will explore the fun and playful side of the music, the kind where you get to make up your own rules as you go along. Recommended for ages 6 and older.
Time Out New York Kids will host the third annual Time Out Kids Family Fest in the Atrium before each performance. The free event will feature live music, tasty treats and kid-friendly interactive activities. Atrium, 12-1pm & 2-3pm.
