Wynton Marsalis with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra 

When: Fri., Jan. 28, 8 p.m. and Sat., Jan. 29, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $55-110
He's the current torchbearer for the famed Marsalis family, but New Orleans-born trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis' relatively safe style has been saddled with controversy. A fierce proponent of traditionalism, Marsalis—who began playing in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers at age 19—famously clashed with Miles Davis at the 1986 Vancouver International Jazz Festival and has been castigated for a lack of innovation. But he's also the first jazz musician to win a Pulitzer Prize, which sits alongside his nine Grammys in both classical and jazz categories, mind you. Marsalis leads the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in a pair of 8 p.m. performances tonight and Saturday, with limited tickets still available at $55–$110. —Spencer Griffith
