Ellis Marsalis , Marcus Roberts


Grand pianos dialogue Ellis Marsalis / Marcus Roberts

Try to forget for a moment that he's the father of Branford and Wynton, two superstars of today's jazz scene. Impossible, you say? Well, Ellis Marsalis is not only a great pianist and the patriarch of the world's most preeminent jazz family, he is also one of the great disseminators of the New Orleans jazz tradition. His method? University teaching. His students? Fresh faces like Harry Connick, Jr., Terence Blanchard, Marlon Jordan and of course his sons.

Speaking of fresh faces, Ellis Marsalis will be accompanied by Marcus Roberts for this exceptional musical event. This 30-year-old Florida pianist played with Wynton Marsalis for five years, acquiring a reputation for an exacting and respectful technique invested with a contemplative approach. It's two masters then that you're invited to listen to... and applaud.
