Music Diary Notes:Watch Wynton Marsalis Live on UStream Today!

They say that music is the international language (actually, in Better Off Dead we learn that ‘love’ is that language), crossing borders and languages and cultures with its ability to transcend the spoken word. This afternoon two titans of the jazz music genre – Wynton Marsalis and Igor Butman – will join forces in a concert that will be streamed LIVE from Ukraine!

Here are the details:

America’s cultural ambassador, trumpeter Wynton Marsalis will join Russia’s premier jazz musician, saxophonist Igor Butman in a concert that reaches across time and geopolitical borders.

Jazz — America’s model for collaboration and improvisation– is coming to you LIVE from Lviv, Ukraine’s cultural center at the Alfa Jazz Festival in Boghdan Khmelnitsky Culture Park.
Join us online to experience the rich, swinging feeling of jazz as two great musicians unite on the global stage; Friday, 3 June 2011 at 20:30/(1:30pm EST/10:30am PST)
