Jason Marsalis is the youngest son of piano patriarch and jazz luminary Ellis Marsalis Jr. and their famous New Orleans musical family, declared America’s “First Family of Jazz” upon the presentation of their NEA Jazz Masters Award in 2011. In addition to his renown as a drummer, Jason is also a respected vibraphonist whose 2018 release “Melody Reimagined” with his 21st Century Trad Jazz Band rose swiftly to the top of the Billboard jazz chart. With a fire in his heart and a passion for the music, his will to swing has never been more resolute. The maturity and the command Jason possesses over his music is clearly evident to those who have heard or seen him. 

Friday nights were Ellis Marsalis Jr’s regular residential night here at Snug for over 25 years, and to keep guarding that flame, we now present members of Ellis’ family and his personal band from over the years as bandleaders each Friday night. 
Tonight, Jason presents a musical tribute to his father, the late great Ellis Marsalis Jr, with members of E’s last band. 

The E Tribute Quintet tonight features
Jason Marsalis – drums 
Jason Stewart – bass 
Oscar Rossignoli – piano 
Derek Douget – saxophones 
Steve Lands – trumpet
