“As a composer, Mr. Marsalis has taken up both challenges, of precise tone poetry and of capturing a broader American experience.”— The New York Times

A 2011 NEA Jazz Master and arguably the most famous jazz musician alive, trumpeter Wynton Marsalis is an iconic figure in the evolution of the art form and a tireless advocate for jazz as America’s classical music. From his New Orleans beginnings and fiery debut with legendary drummer Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers to his string of acclaimed albums and current role as Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, he has amassed an unrivaled number of awards and accolades, including nine Grammys and the Pulitzer Prize for Music, the first ever awarded to a jazz artist. Since 1988, Marsalis has led the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, a 15-piece assemblage of virtuosos which has contemporized the notion of a “big band,” simultaneously honoring the rich heritage of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong while debuting a stunning variety of commissions from illustrious names including Joe Henderson, Christian McBride, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Lovano and of course, Wynton himself.

Assuring a unique experience for audiences, each of these five performances at the SFJAZZ Center will feature unique repertoire from some of the greatest composers in jazz, and the birthplace of the music, New Orleans.
