Ellis Marsalis Quintet
Marsalis, one of the jazz greats and the patriarch of the "First Family of Jazz," will perform with his sons, Jason and Delfeayo. Over 50 years of performance, Marsalis has played with Cannonball Adderly, Nat Adderly, and Al Hirt and was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. For a lifetime, Marsalis, age 82, has been a pillar of not only the New Orleans jazz community, but also a leading music educator nationally. This concert is in support of Santa Fe Villas, a permanent housing project for homeless individuals.
