Why See Delfeayo Marsalis?
Delfeayo Marsalis Leads The Uptown Jazz Orchestra
Modern jazz owes a lot to the Marsalis family, who've collectively elevated the art form through their chosen instruments and prolific outputs. Delfeayo Marsalis, the brood's talented trombonist and band leader, was inspired by the musical heritage of New Orleans, forming the Uptown Jazz Orchestra in 2008 with the aim of preserving the essence of the Big Easy's big band and trad jazz traditions. Don't miss their colorful repertory during a special one-night-only performance at Denver's June Swaner Gates Concert Hall this winter.
Delfeayo is joined by Dirty Dozen Brass Band leader Roger Lewis on the baritone sax, as well as a multi-generational ensemble of his home city's finest musicians, who've rightly earned the accolade of ambassadors to the birth place of jazz. Together they'll be performing songbook and blues standards, fusing them with breathtaking improvisational flights, groovy riffs and New Orleans second line groove for a vibrant set dedicated to keeping old school jazz alive and kicking.
Performance date: 26 February 2019
