NEA Jazz Master Delfeayo Marsalis brings the soul of New Orleans to Santa Fe! The Marsalis family are the most celebrated ambassadors of New Orleans’ unique jazz heritage. Following a decorated career as a sideman in bands with jazz legends like Ray Charles, Art Blakey, and Elvin Jones, Delfeayo formed his own band—the Uptown Jazz Orchestra. Playing a mix of original compositions and classic jazz songs, this lively band emphasizes important jazz traditions like riff playing and spontaneous arrangements. Celebrate Mardi Gras in style with the Uptown Jazz Orchestra!
This event is part of the 2024 Art + Sol Winter Arts Festival
