Sometimes, there are those times when it seems the stars en masse fall onto Buffalo. This is one week ahead that is one of those times. Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at the Lincoln Center Orchestra hit UBCFA. Legendary saxophonist Gary Bartz, whose roots are playing with Miles Davis and Art Blakely and Jazz Messengers, will be here. Notable former Bad Plus pianist and leader of his fantastic Captain Black Big Band finds his way to Buffalo. One of the top Gypsy Jazz performers Stephane Wrembel makes an appearance. And finally, the rare finger-strutting French guitarist Pierre Bensusan will be in an intimate church setting. Read the JazzBuffalo picks below and click through to get all the details!
