An educator and a leading advocate of American culture, Marsalis has created and performed an expansive range of music from quartets to big bands, chamber music ensembles to symphony orchestras and tap dance to ballet, expanding the vocabulary for jazz and classical music with a vital body of work that places him among the world’s finest musicians and composers.

The Democracy! Suite

Composed by Marsalis in 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis as a response to the political, social and economic struggles facing our nation.

The Democracy! Suite is a swinging and stimulating instrumental rumination on both the issues that have recently dominated our lives, as well as the beauty that could emerge from a collective effort to create a better future.
