“An elegant and electric performer with an unbelievably rich palette of techniques and styles rooted in New Orleans soul.” – Wynton Marsalis

“The energy and the excitement, the love of the audience, the humanism that he brings to his music is everything that I want.” – Stephen Colbert, host of The Late Show

Multifaceted jazz artist Jon Batiste is seen by millions on television five nights a week as bandleader of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. With his soulful brand of high-energy pop mixed with New Orleans funk and American jazz standards, his 2013 album Social Music with Stay Human topped the charts as the No. 1 jazz album in the world. This must-see solo performance supports his forthcoming album produced by T Bone Burnett.
