Delfeayo Marsalis with The Uptown Jazz Orchestra

The jazz world has a royal family, and its name is Marsalis. Delfeayo Marsalis, the trombone-playing member of the current generation of Marsalis jazz musicians, assembled a best-of-the-best jazz orchestra 10 years ago. Although the group began with the intent of keeping jazz traditions alive in the schools of New Orleans, Delfeayo and the orchestra have won a far wider audience than their target. Their sound is decidedly modern, but firmly rooted stylistically in the rich jazz history of New Orleans.
