The Kremlin Meets The Crescent City Concert

For Immediate Release:

On Friday, January 24, 2014, Lupin Hall at NOCCA will host an historic battle of the big
bands when "The Kremlin Meets The Crescent City." The two groups waging war will be
Grammy Award--‐winning producer, trombonist and composer Delfeayo Marsalis and the
Uptown Jazz Orchestra vs. the internationally renowned Igor Butman Jazz Orchestra from
Moscow, Russia. Pulling out all the stops for this engagement, UJO will showcase New
Orleans' top jazz talents including legendary pianist Ellis Marsalis Jr., extraordinary vocalist
Davell Crawford and the masterful funky drummer, Herlin Riley. The elder Marsalis will
provide the unique wisdom and touch of a true Jazz Master, Crawford brings excitement and joy in the traditions of Ray Charles and Fats Domino like no other performer, and Riley's drumming will surely make you want to get up and shake that thing!

Consisting of Moscow's finest jazz players, IBJO is a force to be reckoned with, led by Russia's #1 jazz personality, saxophone virtuoso Igor Butman. Butman trained at the
prestigious Berklee College of Music with Delfeayo and the two share a love for spreading
the news of jazz around the world.  Butman has shared the stage with jazz greats including
Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea, Jack DeJohnette, Pat Metheny and Gary Burton.  His 50th birthday concert took place at the 6000--‐seat Kremlin Palace and featured Wynton Marsalis and Natalie Cole.  At a state dinner hosted by Vladimir Putin, American President Bill Clinton-a tenorman himself-stated that Igor Butman "...may be the greatest living jazz saxophone player, who happens to be Russian."  IBJO will feature the sensational vocalist Fantine Pritoula, known for her passionately soulful and dynamic style.

The Uptown Jazz Orchestra has been rocking houses since its inception in 2008, receiving
standing ovations each year at the Jazz & Heritage Festival, on road excursions and regularly at Snug Harbor. Under the direction of Delfeayo Marsalis, UJO displays extreme
versatility, playing everything from traditional New Orleans music, swing and bebop to modern--‐day brass band funk. Marsalis is known for his "technical excellence, inventive
mind and frequent touches of humor."  Named an NEA Jazz Master in 2011, he has shared
the stage with many jazz greats including Elvin Jones, Max Roach and Art Blakey.

As the birthplace of jazz, New Orleans has influenced musicians around the world for over a
century.  This one--‐of--‐a--‐kind show will highlight the great jazz legacy as interpreted
by two entirely different cultures with the same objective.  Let's have a party, New Orleans
style...where The Kremlin Meets The Crescent City!
