Terence Blanchard/Branford Marsalis
New Orleans all-stars kick off the Jazz Jam series

October 1-2, 8pm
Rose Theater

Two of New Orleans' finest: they both left the cradle of jazz, matriculated into Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, and then helped show the world that the Big Easy is not only the cradle of jazz itself but the nexus of a vibrant scene of modern music. Leading their own groups, these two very different yet complementary composer-instrumentalists offer their own individual styles of contemporary jazz, which are as hard-hitting and melodic as they are unique.
