JASON MARSALIS: Tribute to Lionel Hampton
Fri August 19 @ 8:00 pm
Jason Marsalis is the youngest son of piano patriarch and jazz luminary Ellis Marsalis Jr. and their famous New Orleans music 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.
Tonight, Jason presents his Tribute to Lionel Hampton — the late great vibraphonist, percussionist and bandleader whose career spanned 75 years of work with everyone from Louis Armstrong and Benny Goodman to Charlie Parker and Charles Mingus, and more — where Jason leads the band from the vibes.
