The Wynton Marsalis Septet and Quintet performing at Jazz in Marciac 2017

Iraqi virtuoso oud player Naseer Shamma joins the Wynton Marsalis Septet for a night of music exhibiting how the oud is a perfect fit in the world of jazz. Fresh off their premiere performance together, Shamma and Marsalis’ group plan to perform some of the classic repertoire of Wynton’s Septet while also contributing new arrangements from Shamma’s catalog.

Grammy Award winning vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant joins the Wynton Marsalis Quintet to explore new arrangements of both original compositions and jazz favorites. Still only in her 20s, the Miami-born Salvant, who spent several years in France at the Darius Milhaud Conservatory, has become a frequent collaborator with Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Their Jazz in Marciac program will be sung (and swung!) in both English and French and will feature songs made famous by such greats as Josephine Baker and Damia.
