About the Event

Black Codes (from the Underground) is the 1985 album by Wynton Marsalis, his fourth for Columbia, which won two Grammy awards, including Best Jazz Album. Its six tunes are complex, powerful compositions by Marsalis himself  (with one by Kenny Kirkland). 

Today, Black Codes will interpret this material in their own way: the band builds on previous performances of the album led by pianist Jonathan Gee in London, with the outstanding Paul Higgs taking the trumpet role on this occasion. Italian saxophonist Gaetano Partipilo, from Bari, joins the band while visiting Britain, after a collaboration with Jonathan Gee in Italy, with whom he has developed a project interpreting the songs of the Beatles instrumentally.
