Decades past certainly had their jazz legends. In the 1920s, it was the undisputed Louis Armstrong. The 1950s saw Miles Davis move away from bebop’s pep to the Birth of the Cool. In the 1980s, another trumpet player named Wynton Marsalis appeared on the scene and quickly asserted himself as a true jazz artist. Marsalis – composer, bandleader and mentor – serves as artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, so it only makes sense the impresario join the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra when it plays the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center on Sept. 29. Marsalis and the orchestra are set to give a performance to remember, and it’s brought to Broken Arrow through the BAPAC’s Spotlight Series of music, dance and theater performances. Season tickets are currently available at www.thepacbac.com. Tickets to individual performances go on sale soon.
