“The finest big band in the world today.” — Daily Telegraph


Composed of 15 of jazz music’s leading soloists under the leadership of universally acclaimed trumpeter and musical director Wynton Marsalis, this remarkably versatile orchestra performs and leads concerts and educational events in New York, across the U.S., and around the globe. The big band draws from an extensive repertoire including rare historic compositions, new commissions, as well as the masterworks of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, and other great jazz composers of the twentieth century.
