ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis is set to give a concert and lecture at the University of Georgia.

The school says the three-time Grammy Award winner will be joined by pianist Joey Calderazzo, drummer Justin Faulkner and bass player Eric Revis for a concert at 3 p.m. on April 6.

At 7 p.m. that day, Marsalis is set to give a lecture on the creative process.

Marsalis was recently named a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, the highest honor the U.S. bestows on jazz artists.

He founded the label Marsalis Music in 2002 and has produced his own projects as well as those of new and established jazz artists. He works with his own quartet but has also performed and recorded with a long list of jazz stars.
