Wynton Marsalis Quintet

Symphony Hall

Celebrity Series audiences have known and loved the musical juggernaut that is the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis since its Series debut in 1992. Boston has had less exposure to the Wynton Marsalis Quintet during that time, making the chance to hear this remarkable group of world-class musicians a rare and special one. Hear the jazz master and his fellow musicians in a smaller, more intimate ensemble, the sort where individual interplay and musical conversation is in full swing.

“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. ”
