A Fort Greene senior center got a dose of Lincoln Center on Friday night when jazz trumpeter and impresario Wynton Marsalis stopped by to play two sold-out shows.

Marsalis is famous for bringing his music to young audiences with his acclaimed Jazz at Lincoln Center program, but Friday’s show targeted the other end of the age spectrum, offering world-class performances in the intimate confines of Jazz 966, a club in the Grace A. Harewood Senior Center on Fulton Street that has served as a stopover for jazz greats since 1990.

Musicians such as Dakota Staton and Etta Jones have previously played the senior center-run venue, which opens to the public on Friday nights.
