Soweto Kinch presents a UK exclusive appearance by the Wynton Marsalis Quartet at this month’s Cheltenham Music Festival.

Soweto Kinch presents a UK exclusive appearance by the Wynton Marsalis Quartet at this month’s Cheltenham Music Festival. The band features Wynton himself on trumpet, with Dan Nimmer, piano; Mark Lewandowski, bass; and Francesco Ciniglio, drums. In the interval Al Ryan talks to Wynton about his current band, and also we hear about Brass For Africa, which brings a band of young Ugandan musicians on stage with Wynton, Guy Barker and Cheltenham Music Festival Artistic Director, trumpeter Alison Balsom. The programme also includes a tribute to drummer Paolo Vinaccia, who died earlier this month.
