Arizona Arts Live brings jazz to Centenial Hall on the University of Arizona campus, showcasing Jon Batiste, one of the best-known musicians of his generation, virtuoso pianist, singer, bandleader, educator, and television personality.   Jon Batiste has spent his career bringing music back to where it started - with the people.  Born into Louisiana's legendarily musical Batiste family, Jon studied at Juilliard, where he established his Stay Human band by playing around New York City's subways and in street performances he called "love riots."  He developed a fluency in jazz and popular music of all stripes, collaborating with legends from Wynton Marsalis to Prince.  In 2015, Jon was named bandleader and musical director of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.  
This performance is part of the Tucson Jazz Festival.
