Branford Marsalis, SRJO celebrate the music of New Orleans


National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master and triple Grammy Award winner Branford Marsalis (the eldest of the performing Marsalis brothers) collaborates with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra (SRJO) for a performance celebrating the music of his hometown, New Orleans — from the early brass bands through Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet and King Oliver and on to modern interpretations of classic-jazz compositions.

"Basin Street Blues" and "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans" will be among the classics performed.

The concerts are part of SRJO's 2012-13 season as well as the 2012 Earshot Jazz Festival. 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Nordstrom Recital Hall, Benaroya Hall, 200 University St., Seattle; and 3 p.m. Sunday at Kirkland Performance Center, 350 Kirkland Ave., Kirkland. There is a waiting list for the Benaroya shows, but a few tickets remain for the Kirkland shows at $65 adults, $59 seniors and $30 students (206-523-6159, www.srjo.org or srjotickets@gmail.com).
