ABOUT THIS SHOW
A 2011 NEA Jazz Master and arguably the most famous jazz musician alive, trumpeter Wynton Marsalis is an iconic figure in the evolution of the art form and a tireless advocate for jazz as America’s classical music. He returns for four nights with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the greatest large group in jazz.

From his New Orleans beginnings and fiery debut with legendary drummer Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers to his string of acclaimed albums and current role as Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, Marsalis has amassed an unrivaled number of awards and accolades, including nine GRAMMYs and the Pulitzer Prize for Music, the first ever awarded to a jazz artist.

Since 1988, he has led the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, a 15-piece assemblage of virtuosos which has contemporized the notion of a "big band," simultaneously honoring the rich heritage of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong while debuting a stunning variety of commissions from illustrious names including Joe Henderson, Christian McBride, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Lovano and of course, Wynton himself. This rare San Francisco appearance is a major jazz event, and we are delighted to welcome them back to the SFJAZZ Center.

About Fridays Live

As SFJAZZ returns to the presentation of live concerts in September, our flagship weekly online concert series (Fridays at Five) has evolved into a truly live event – Fridays Live. Each Friday at 7:30pm PT/10:30pm ET, we'll feature a broadcast of that evening's concert, live from the SFJAZZ Center, and free to all SFJAZZ Members. We'll also feature never-before-seen performances from SFJAZZ's deep archive. Fridays Live will keep all of the same immersive elements as Fridays at Five, including real-time chats with artists and fans, multi-cam HD video, and state-of-the-art audio. 

SATURDAY ENCORE | SATURDAYS AT 11 AM PT
If you miss the Fridays Live premiere or if you live in a distant time zone, catch the Encore the following day at 11 AM PT as part of your Membership. 

FRIDAYS LIVE ON-DEMAND
Watch on your own time! Concerts premiering on Fridays Live will become available On-Demand soon after, and will be available for 90 days. Members save 50% on access.

"That was super-great ... really immersive, amazing camerawork and the sound was excellent. I just felt like I was inside the music and really in the hall." — SFJAZZ Member
