Ellis Marsalis, Jr. and Delfeayo Marsalis

The Last Southern Gentlemen
Ellis Marsalis, Jr. and Delfeayo Marsalis
Friday, September 19, 2014 - 8:00pm
For most of the country, Ellis Marsalis, Jr. is best known as the patriarch of America’s first family of jazz. But back home in New Orleans, the masterful pianist is a Friday night regular at Snug Harbor, where he draws on more than 50 years as a jazz musician. Now the rest of us get to share the fun thanks to the newest project from his second son, trombonist Delfeayo. The Last Southern Gentlemen brings blues, ballads and grooves together to pay tribute to the sweet, gentle sounds of the South. Joined by Grammy Award-winner John Clayton on bass and Marvin “Smitty” Smith on drums, The Last Southern Gentlemen is a wonder of music telepathy strengthened by family bonds.

This event is preceded by a Free Corin Courtyard Concert.
