Join us for a taste of New Orleans with live jazz by Joey Morant and his band.
One of the most exciting and dynamic trumpeters on the scene, Joey Morant brings his thrilling blend of jazz, R&B, and the celebratory sounds of New Orleans to this special Mardi Gras performance. A native of Charleston, South Carolina, Morant works in settings from duets to big bands and orchestras, including the Harlem Blues & Jazz Band. He has performed with jazz, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll greats, including Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Lionel Hampton, and James Brown. He electrifies audiences with his dazzling horn technique, skillful scat singing, and humorous asides.
Presented by the Jazz Foundation of America, with partial support from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
