More Info

Jason Marsalis is the youngest member of the famous New Orleans Marsalis musical jazz family. As the returning show on the Snug Harbor stage after COVID closures, tonight he plays the music of his father, Ellis Marsalis, with a quintet. When the subject of jazz comes up these days, the name Marsalis is soon sure to follow. Brothers Branford, Wynton, Delfeayo, and Jason have all reached international fame. But before they found their own success, their father Ellis was shaping his career, and his sons' inspiration, as a jazz pianist and composer in New Orleans. Ellis Marsalis has now been recognized as one of the most renowned music educators in the U.S., imparting his extensive knowledge of jazz to students like Harry Connick, Jr., Terence Blanchard, and of course, his four sons. In 2011, he and his sons received the prestigious Jazz Masters Award from the National Endowment for the Arts. All performances will be at half the normal audience capacity, creating an even more intimate listening experience. Covid mandates will be honored with masks required and social distancing. With the limited seating, it is advised that you get your tickets early!
