WHAT'S ON / Scottish National Jazz Orchestra featuring Branford Marsalis
at The Queen's Hall
Scottish National Jazz Orchestra present the music of Wayne Shorter
Legendary saxophonist Branford Marsalis occupies a unique place in jazz history and he joins the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra to pay tribute to another of jazz’s true greats: saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter. He was a creative force with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, a crucial member of Miles Davis’s quintet, co-leader of fusion masters Weather Report and an enduring inspiration to a world-wide audience.
Featuring Shorter jewels including Nefertiti, ESP and Virgo Rising with specially commissioned arrangements, Branford Marsalis and SNJO present music of subtlety, passion and melodic character played by a first rate orchestra of collective skill and solo firepower.
