From a young age it was clear that Jason Marsalis had what it took to be great. Jason is the son of pianist and music educator Ellis Marsalis and his wife Dolores, and the youngest sibling of Wynton, Branford and Delfeayo. Together, the four brothers and their patriarch Ellis, comprise New Orleans’ venerable first family of jazz. Renowned as both a vibraphonist and a drummer, with each passing year, Marsalis continues to grow and develop as both a composer and performer. With a fire in his heart and a passion for the music, his will to swing has never been more resolute. The maturity and the command he possesses over his music is evident to all those who have heard or seen him play. On this concert date, the Jason Marsalis Quartet pays tribute to iconic vibraphonist Lionel Hampton. Marsalis’ quartet will feature pianist Adam Shulman, bassist David Ewell, and drummer Jaz Sawyer.
