Delfeayo Marsalis 'Charlie Parker with a Twist' at The Iridium

A multiple Grammy Award winner as a producer, trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis "solos with authority, inserting musical quotes spontaneously as the mood takes him in different directions" (All About Jazz). He comes from a New Orleans musical family that includes not only his older brothers Branford and Wynton, but also his father, renowned pianist Ellis Marsalis, and his younger brother, drummer Jason. The San Francisco Examiner calls him "one of the best, most imaginative and musical of the trombonists of his generation. His fluid expression and keen melodic sense are especially commendable."

As a trombonist, Delfeayo has toured internationally with legendary jazz artists Art Blakey, Abdullah Ibrahim, Elvin Jones, Slide Hampton and Max Roach, as well as touring with his own modern jazz ensemble. During a tour with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, he was filmed as part of the Ken Burns documentary, ” Jazz.”  A mainstay on the New Orleans modern jazz scene, he has released three solo albums to critical acclaim ONTIUS PILATE'S DECISION in 1992, MUSASHI in 1997, and MINIONS DOINION. http://www.delfeayomarsalis.com/
