Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz Lincoln Center Orchestra

28 Feb

I am so excited. Things have been busy, busy, busy for me in real estate and I’m taking the evening off on Thursday to spend with my husband and one of our favorite musicians in the world! No phone, no email, no stress…just pure enjoyment!

My husband is a musician and audio engineer and his instrument of choice is trumpet, in which he is classically trained. I must give him credit for seriously turning me on to Jazz music and introducing me to the big hitters of the genre and some of the less known. Imagine his envy when I came home to tell him I had met Wynton Marsalis! It was a few years ago at an after party for the Savannah Music Festival. He is a friendly and humble man at the very least, but I am not afraid to say he is the Louie Armstrong or Miles Davis of our time. He is magical to hear and the Jazz Lincoln Center Orchestra is a delight to watch and listen to.

Wynton is on tour now and will be appearing Thursday evening with Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra here in Savannah at the Trustees Theatre. The official Savannah Music Festival kicks off March 22nd, but I’m glad I don’t have to wait to see my Jazz hero!! Tickets are still available here

Here is something fancy… if you can’t make it to the show, stream it live for free here!

On a side note, my husbands birthday is coming up so I am planning to smuggle his trumpet into the show in hopes I can get Wynton to sign it for him…pretty cool and sentimental gift idea, no? At the very least, perhaps it will inspire the hubby musically. Wish me luck!
