Saturday Jazz

“When did we begin to lose faith in our ability to effect change?” ~ Wynton Marsalis

“Jazz music is America’s past and its potential, summed up and sanctified and accessible to anybody who learns to listen to, feel, and understand it. The music can connect us to our earlier selves and to our better selves-to-come. It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.” ~ Wynton Marsalis

A bit of something good for every jazz enthusiast from this short concert.
