UCSB Arts & Lectures presents the Wynton Marsalis Quintet!
Since 2005, the Wynton Marsalis Quintet has brought audiences around the globe their unique take on standard jazz repertoire, as well as introduced them to fresh additions to the canon. In their performances, the Quintet features seminal compositions from Marsalis’ diverse, wide-ranging career, original works by his frequent collaborators and standards spanning the vast historical landscape of jazz music.
“This is the pulpit where Wynton’s sermons are most convincing. He can display the primacy of the swing beat with a remarkable hard-bop quintet who fizz and crackle and groove, who listen carefully, and whose solos sound like perfectly written narratives.” The Guardian (U.K.)
