One of the most well-known jazz musicians leading his incredible 15-member big band.

Wynton Marsalis stands in a league all his own. A creative genius, compassionate humanitarian, legendary trumpeter, masterful composer, arts advocate, tireless educator, and cultural leader, he inspires and uplifts people through superb music-making. Performing music that links today’s improvisers with the rich history of traditional and contemporary big-band composition, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, led by Marsalis, brings an expansive range of music to the most treasured international stages. Despite one of the most aggressive touring schedules in the business, JLCO makes each concert fresh, drawing in audiences who are continually energized and amazed by the group’s depth of outrageous talent. “The audience was weak from applauding and shouting and jumping up and down with the joy of the great music it had heard.” (El Universal/The Herald)
