Branford Marsalis and Jean-Willy Kunz

Branford Marsalis, saxophone, and Jean-Willy Kunz, pipe organ

Combining saxophone and pipe organ may seem like an improbable duo, but acclaimed saxophonist Branford Marsalis, specialist of both jazz and classical music, and Jean-Willy Kunz, famed pipe organist and Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal’s first organist in residence, have created this crossover concert full of surprising discoveries. All About Jazz raves, “Multi-genre music is a global phenomenon today. What singled out this concert from the crowd were the extraordinary virtuosity and rapport of Marsalis and Kunz on two infrequently paired instruments…and their excellent choice of classical pieces that could be readily appreciated by jazz fans.”
