EXPECT BOURBON STREET
The jazz world has a royal family, and its name is Marsalis. Delfeayo Marsalis, the trombone-playing member of the current generation of Marsalis jazz musicians, assembled this best-of-the-best jazz orchestra 10 years ago to celebrate the musical heritage of New Orleans jazz, blues and groove. Today, the group tours internationally, delighting audiences with its stellar soloists, bold energy and Southern charm. The Los Angeles Times hailed Marsalis, an NEA Jazz Master, for his “technical excellence, inventive mind and frequent touches of humor.”
