Join the UPS Jazz Orchestra for a holiday evening of entertaining and electric jazz featuring acclaimed trombonist, composer, and producer Delfeayo Marsalis, joined by vocalists Maureen Parker, Paige Hansen of KNKX Tacoma Radio, and student vocalist Eli Kitchens ’22. Downbeat Magazine called Delfeayo Marsalis “A Merchant of Joy,” emphasizing his “relentless funk and gospel grooves, ebullient second-line syncopations, Afro-Caribbean-flavored street beats, undulating old-school press rolls, the distinctive flow of nouveau swing.” Grammy winner Delfeayo Marsalis has dedicated his prolific career to music theatre and education while also touring with jazz legends such as Art Blakey, Max Roach, and Slide Hampton, including leading his own groups such as the Uptown Jazz Orchestra. See you there!
This event will take place on Tuesday, November 30th, at the Blue Mouse Theater. Student and Faculty/Staff tickets will be sold for $12 at the Wheelock Student Center Info Desk and Online.
