Jazz Legend Wynton Marsalis Swings Into Kingsbury Hall
January 21, 2011: Trumpet master Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra return to Salt Lake City for one night only to bring some swinging heat to a cold February night. Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will perform at Kingsbury Hall on the University of Utah campus on Monday, February 7 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $34.50, $44.50, $54.50 and $59.50 (orchestra pit) and are available at www.kingtix.com or by calling 801-581-7100.
The Orchestra’s stop in Salt Lake is part of the 2011 Vitoria Suite Tour in the U.S. wherein the world-renowned big band will perform a wide variety of music - from original compositions to newly-arranged music of Chick Corea as well as selections from its most recent CD release, Vitoria Suite. Vitoria Suite is a new extended work by Marsalis that uses the impulse of the blues as a foundation to jointly explore the music of two worlds and two cultures: the jazz and blues of North America and the indigenous music of the Basque region and flamenco of Spain.
