Jason Marsalis is the youngest son of jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis and his famous New Orleans musical family. In addition to his renown as a great drummer, Jason is also a respected vibes player. 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 clearly evident to those who have heard or seen him. Tonight he returns to his project, the B.G.Q. Exploration, exploring the 1930s catalog of the Benny Goodman Quartet, with Marsalis replicating Lionel Hampton's work on vibes, Kris Kotarski on piano, Gerald Watkins on drums, and Joe Goldberg on clarinet.
