MURRAY--Albert. Jazz at Lincoln Center mourns the passing of our friend Albert Murray, one of America's great cultural thinkers and one of our original champions. Albert's conceptions are the intellectual foundation of our institution. He spoke eloquently on the significance of American vernacular to the fine art of jazz. Deeply philosophical about jazz's rightful place in the pantheon of Western arts, Albert was an engaged listener to jazz of all styles, and had a profound belief in the transformative power of the music. Our friend will be missed, and his contributions will increase in significance as time goes on. Robert Appel, Chairman and Wynton Marsalis, Managing & Artistic Director
