  1. I just watched the 60 minutes piece and it is so great to know that this music – that I was brought up on – is still alive with many thanks to this band. My Dad used to play lp’s of Stan Getz, Boots Randolph, Glen Miller when I was young and I also have played alto sax in our school band growing up. The 60 min story brought back so many great memories. I want to take my father who has recently been diagnosed with cancer to the show in DC as a surprise. i checked out the website but it says they are sold out, perhaps someone can help me out? we can make to other shows around the same dates thanks, Mike McGee, Canada

  2. Keep up the great work, Wynton. The world needs to drink from the vast river of our music’s history, which is the sound of the heartbeat of the birthplace of humankind.

    I await you at the estuary of love and peace.

  4. I really appreciate Mr. Marsalis’ music through the years. My most memorible concert was in Omaha, NE, many many years ago. It’s a miracle and a blessing Mr. Marsalis is so extremely creative, dedicated, and down to earth. Thank you very much.
