Considered the finest “big band” of today, this group consists of 15 of jazz music’s leading soloists, spearheaded by the great Wynton Marsalis, an internationally acclaimed musician and jazz artist extraordinaire. Marsalis is considered to be the first to compose and perform the entire spectrum of jazz music, from its New Orleans roots to bebop. Their show at the Winspear features a mix of original compositions and masterworks by Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and John Coltrane.
