Jazz at the Rat is a concert series at Tulane University, featuring special guests performing alongside student musicians from Tulane's Jazz Studies program. Free and open to the public, and hosted by Jesse McBride.
Touring and recording with superstar Beyoncé, and also as the assistant director of Esperanza Spalding's Radio Music Society, has put saxophonist Tia Fuller at the center of the pop music universe. The 37-year-old is also one the most important new instrumentalists in jazz, as a bandleader, composer, arranger, and educator who follows in the scorching footsteps of masters like Cannonball Adderley, Jackie McLean, and Kenny Garrett. She’s racked up an imposing range of credits, including Jimmy Heath, Gerald Wilson, and Nancy Wilson.
