Branford Marsalis joins the Whitworth University Jazz Ensemble

Jazz legend Branford Marsalis joined with the Whitworth University Jazz Ensemble for a night of music at the Fox Theater Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016. The well-known jazz saxophonist, who once led the Tonight Show band, joined the Whitworth band in the second half of the program, playing a variety of jazz, blues and bebop pieces. The crowd called him back to the stage for two encores. This is the latest of Whitworth University guest artist programs, which have included Pat Metheny and Arturo Sandoval.
