"Delfeayo Marsalis & The Uptown Jazz Orchestra are one of the best big bands in the world and we look forward to an extraordinary evening of live jazz music."
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (PRWEB) January 10, 2022
Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club Features NEA Jazz Master & GRAMMY® Award-Winning Jazz Producer, Composer & Trombonist DELFEAYO MARSALIS & THE UPTOWN JAZZ ORCHESTRA on Wednesday January 12 at 7 and 9:30 P.M. Along with the Marsalis family of musicians including his father Ellis, Delfeayo Marsalis was destined to a life in music. At the age of 17, Marsalis began his career as a producer and has to date produced over 120 recordings - winning one GRAMMY® Award and garnering several GRAMMY® Award Nominations.
- “He's been such an important part of the fabric of this music, whether producing works of lasting significance for other jazz greats in the studio, sharing space with his famous family, or leading his Uptown Orchestra through a rousing set in the Crescent City…Hearing Delfeayo deliver wonderfully woozy lyrical lines, full-bore solos, and the occasional artful gliss is pure joy," claims ALL ABOUT JAZZ.
- DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE raves, “It’s not hard to pinpoint why Delfeayo Marsalis’ New Orleans-based Uptown Jazz Orchestra’s recent release, ‘Jazz Party’, and its 2016 predecessor, ‘Make American Great Again’—both on Troubadour Jass, and both consisting primarily of his compositions and arrangements—rank among the strongest big band discs of the past 10 years….One attribute is a percolating rhythmic palette—relentless funk and gospel grooves, ebullient second-line syncopations, Afro-Caribbean-flavored street beats, undulating old-school press rolls, the distinctive flow of nouveau swing. Then there’s the breathe-as-one synchronicity of the woodwind and brass sections honed during more than a decade of Wednesday gigs at the eminent New Orleans nightclub Snug Harbor.”
Delfeayo Marsalis is brother to Wynton Marsalis (Trumpeter), Brandford Marsalis (Saxophonist), and Jason Marsalis (Drummer). As an acclaimed producer, composer, and trombonist, Delfeayo Marsalis has also dedicated his prolific career to music theatre and education. In 2008, he formed the Uptown Jazz Orchestra, a highly entertaining ensemble that focuses on maintaining important jazz traditions such as riff playing, New Orleans polyphony and spontaneous arrangements.
"We are grateful we have the opportunity to bring prolific jazz composer and trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis to Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club," said Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club. "Delfeayo Marsalis & The Uptown Jazz Orchestra are one of the best big bands in the world and we look forward to an extraordinary evening of live jazz music. Their early show is already sold out to an excited audience!"
