:The Sounds of Democracy": Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra Septet (University Musical Society).

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

Nov. 27-29. Celebrated trumpet virtuoso Wynton Marsalis, arguably the biggest name in contemporary jazz, performs his own works with this polished chamber ensemble. The son of the great New Orleans jazz pianist and educator Ellis Marsalis (and brother of saxophonist Branford Marsalis), Marsalis swiftly blazed his own trail as a performer and composer, earning acclaim for his crisp, crackling notes and a full, pure tone. He's also an eclectic composer who builds on the work of the jazz masters and experiments with a wide variety of styles.
Anytime from 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 27 through Nov. 29, online at ums.org/season/2020-21-season. Free. 764-2538.

Tonight's prerecorded program of French Baroque music written for dancing includes Rebel's Les Caractères de la Danse, a scene from Rameau's Pigmalion, solo suites for oboe and viol by Philidor and Marais, and the earthy, rollicking dances of Boismortier's Ballets de Village.
