Wynton Marsalis Can Play With His Eyes Closed

An Evening With Wynton Marsalis. New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park W., nr. 76th St., 6:30 p.m. Glenn Close, Angela Bassett, and others are expected to be on hand as Mr. Marsalis performs four songs from his album after a Q&A. We went to a similar event in college, and it ended with him playing a solo and accompanying himself on piano with his left hand. It was pretty awesome.
