MARSALIS BRASILIANOS
7:30 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA, Conway. $23-$35.

Jazz fans know him as the eldest son in the country's pre-eminent jazz families, as a saxophonist who's collaborated with the likes of Art Blakely, Miles Davis and Sting. Regular folks remember him as the leader of Jay Leno's band in the early '90s. Now, classical music enthusiasts are getting a taste, as the Grammy Award winning saxophonist tours with the Philharmonia Brasileira in a tribute to Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos, who famously joined Brazilian folk music with the European classical tradition. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of the composer's death, the concert includes Villa-Lobos' “Fantasia for Soprano Saxophone,” “Suite for Strings” and “Bachianas Brasilieras no. 5.”
