There is no room to hide in a small ensemble, but where some struggle mightily under the demands of so much freedom, trumpeter Wynton Marsalis' skill and command are almost overwhelming. Only great improvisers can sustain interest for extended solos, where their knowledge and skill stand out in full relief. Wynton Marsalis is one of the great musicians of our time in any setting ? but don't miss him in the intimate setting of Sanders Theatre. He is among the very best, ever - and he always brings along some seriously swinging friends. For this concert, Marsalis is bringing Dan Nimmer, piano; Carlos Henriquez, bass; Ali Jackson, drums; Walter Blanding, reeds; Jennifer Sanon, vocals
