Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet in Atlanta During National Black Arts Festival
(Published: September 08, 2014)

Wynton Marsalis served as this year's Spotlight Series curator, selecting additional musicians to join the summer's program. As part of this series, NBAF is pleased to welcome the Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet featuring Marsalis on vibraphones, Will Goble on bass, David Potter on drums and Austin Johnson on piano. Performing hits from his most recent album, "my younger brother Jason, with perfect pitch and unerring rhythmic sophistication, is a master of the vibes," explains Wynton Marsalis. Thursday, September 11, 8 p.m. at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta

Son of pianist and music educator Ellis Marsalis and 
his wife Dolores, and the brother of Wynton, Branford and Delfeayo, Jason Marsalis is the youngest member of New Orleans' venerable first family of jazz. After graduating from the acclaimed New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts High School (NOCCA) in 1995, Marsalis ascended to the drum throne of a new group led by virtuoso pianist and former sideman for Wynton Marsalis, Marcus Roberts. By 2007, he recorded with John Ellis and Double-wide on the well received album Dance Like There's No Tomorrow. He also recorded and produced an album of Thelonious Monk's music with his father entitled An Open Letter to Thelonious. In 2009, the Marsalis Family received the NEA Jazz Masters award and Marsalis released his debut album on vibes, Music Update. In 2013, Marsalis released his next recording as a leader on vibes entitled In a World of Mallets. The album went to #1 on the CMJ Radio Charts and won an Offbeat Magazine award for best Contemporary Jazz Album. With each passing year Jason Marsalis continues to grow and develop as both a composer and performer. Holding a fire in his heart and a passion for the 
music, his will to swing has never been more resolute.
