The Wynton Marsalis Septet features the best of the best, with each legendary member an undisputed leader on his instrument. Led by nine-time GRAMMY® Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Wynton Marsalis, the group’s repertoire includes originals from Marsalis and his band mates, as well as a diverse selection of favorites from throughout jazz history. With an array of straight jazz, blues, bop, New Orleans music, and Marsalis’ own extended compositions, music fans will find a lot to dig into during these sets. A shining example of polish and discipline, the group navigates these demanding pieces with deceptive ease, leaving room for expressive, subtle detail and off-the-cuff interaction. Most excitingly, every player gets plenty of time to solo – and these soloists are inexhaustible, endlessly resourceful, and nothing short of magnificent.
