Recently released, The Last Southern Gentlemen is a landmark recording pairing father Ellis Marsalis, Jr., with son Delfeayo Marsalis. Joined by bassist John Clayton and drummer "Smitty" Smith, this program swings effortlessly through standards and original compositions. A sense of humanity and humility is at the center of the Southern lifestyle that birthed the original American music. Built on the intimacy of American ballads and the trombone's expressive mimicry of the human voice, The Last Southern Gentlemen is a firm acknowledgement of the existence and importance of these sweet, gentle sounds. Hear for yourself why the Marsalis family is considered to be among jazz's greatest living legends. Ticketed event.
