Performance Santa Fe presents Delfeayo Marsalis and 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 artists—is one of the top musicians, composers, and bandleaders at work in jazz today. Praised for his “technical excellence, inventive mind and frequent touches of humor” (Los Angeles Times), Marsalis assembled a best-of-the-best orchestra ten years ago to celebrate the musical heritage of New Orleans jazz. The Uptown Jazz Orchestra (UJO), which includes Dirty Dozen Brass Band founder Roger Lewis on baritone saxophone, brings its iconic old-school jazz to Santa Fe on March 1, in a show that will delight audiences with its stellar soloists, bold energy, and Southern charm.
After enjoying the grooving, riffing, and Mardi Gras spirit of the performance, audience members are invited to meet Delfeayo Marsalis and the musicians of UJO at an Offstage Artist Reception at the Eldorado Hotel’s Agave Lounge. Tickets to the reception are $50 and available through the Performance Santa Fe office.
Program announced from the stage. Artist roster will be available closer to the performance.
