The musicians will debut The Paul Simon Songbook presentation during Jazz at Lincoln Center’s 2012 Annual Gala on April 18 and reprise the show for the public on April 19 and 20. All three performances will take place in the theater’s Rose Theater space. Simon looks to have a big year ahead, including a tour where he will perform his classic Graceland in its entirety.
