In addition, XM and JALC will collaborate on new shows, and the satellite -adio provider will record and broadcast some Jazz at Lincoln Center events and other live performances at Rose Hall.

"Creating a recorded legacy and disseminating live jazz performances is an essential part of the mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center," said Derek E. Gordon, president and CEO of Jazz at Lincoln Center. "Our collaboration with XM Satellite Radio gives millions of listeners the opportunity to hear the best performers in jazz today, from a venue that was designed to celebrate this great American art form."
