PORTSMOUTH, NH, January 10, 2022 / PRNewswire-PRWeb / – Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Presents The NEA Jazz Master and GRAMMYÂ® Award Winning Jazz Producer, Composer and Trombonist DELFEAYO MARSALIS and THE UPTOWN JAZZ ORCHESTRA on wednesday 12 january to 7 and 9:30 p.m. With the Marsalis family of musicians including his father Ellis, Delfeayo Marsalis was meant for a life in music. At the age of 17, Marsalis began his career as a producer and to date has produced over 120 recordings – winning a GRAMMYÂ® Award and several GRAMMYÂ® Award nominations.
“He has played such an important role in the fabric of this music, whether it be producing works of lasting importance to other jazz greats in the studio, sharing a space with his famous family, or lead his Uptown Orchestra through a rousing set in Crescent Townâ¦ Hearing Delfeayo delivers wonderfully woozy lyrical lines, full bore solos, and the occasional artistic gliss is sheer joy, âsays ALL ABOUT JAZZ.
DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE raves: “It’s not hard to determine why Delfeayo Marsalis’ New OrleansUptown Jazz Orchestra’s recent release, ‘Jazz Party’, and its 2016 predecessor, ‘Make American Great Again’ â both on Troubadour Jass, and both composed primarily of his compositions and arrangements â rank among the records of most powerful big bands of the past 10 yearsâ¦ One attribute is a percolating rhythmic palette – relentless funk and gospel grooves, bubbling second-line syncopations, street rhythms with Afro-Caribbean flavors, rippling press rolls to the old, the distinctive flow of the new swing. Then there’s the common breathing synchronicity of the woodwind and brass sections honed over a decade of Wednesday concerts at the eminent New Orleans Snug Harbor nightclub. “
Delfeayo Marsalis is the brother of Wynton marsalis (Trumpet), Brandford marsalis (saxophonist), and Jason marsalis (Drummer). Acclaimed producer, composer and trombonist, Delfeayo Marsalis has also devoted his prolific career to musical theater and education. In 2008 he formed the Uptown Jazz Orchestra, a highly entertaining ensemble that focuses on maintaining important jazz traditions such as riffing, New Orleans polyphony and spontaneous arrangements.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to bring prolific jazz composer and trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis to Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club,” said Suzanne Bresette, director general 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 are looking forward to an amazing evening of live jazz music. Their first concert is already sold out in front of an enthusiastic audience!”
