Ellis Marsalis Quintet

Our Fifth Marsalis at GPAC. NEA Jazz Master Ellis Marsalis is a father figure of modern jazz — in quite a few ways. As a pianist, he was among the first generation of musicians to bring bebop to New Orleans, and he even worked with Ornette Coleman before the saxophonist recorded his landmarks of free jazz. As an educator, he has mentored and instructed many great musicians, whether in New Orleans’ arts high school or at various university programs. And of course, he is also the actual father of several exceptional musicians named Branford, Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason Marsalis.
