Jazz legends have a long history in the formation of our great American art form… it started in New Orleans with Louis Armstrong, and continued with Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie and was then advanced by Miles Davis and John Coltrane.

Tonight’s stars carry the torch for a generation of young artists. They are:

Al Jarreau, seven-time Grammy award winning vocalist, star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and one of the true vocal legends of American music who makes his return to the Arsht stage.

David Sanborn, six-time Grammy and multi-platinum selling alto sax star. His soulful, bluesy tone is recognized around the world. Tonight, David Sanborn and Al Jarreau will bring our jazz roots audiences to their feet.

Celebrate jazz appreciation month with the jazz legends!
