If Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra leader Wynton Marsalis doesn't play "outside" enough for you, well, then, you’re free to skip this one. But maybe you can hold two attitudes in your head at once, and acknowledge that, despite Marsalis's conservatism, his band is one of the finest in the country, capable of playing in a certain style and from a certain repertoire at an extremely high level. In that case, good tickets are still available.
Price: Ticket prices vary.
