Branford Marsalis, Joey Calderazzo

When: Sun., Nov. 22, 6 p.m. 2015

No jazz musician has jumped the cultural rails like saxophonist, bandleader and Durham resident Branford Marsalis. It’s not just that he’s played with everybody—he led The Tonight Show Band for Jay Leno, acted in Spike Lee movies and helped found The Musicians Village for players displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Now he lends his name and horn to a benefit concert for the acclaimed North Carolina Central University jazz studies program, taking the Carolina Theatre stage with pianist and frequent collaborator Joey Calderazzo, the NCCU Jazz Ensemble and the NCCU Vocal Jazz Ensemble. A percentage of the ticket price counts as a tax-deductible contribution, and premium tickets get you into a special reception. —Chris Vitiello

Price: $50-$250
