Coral Gables Congregational Church. August 14th, 2008.
Ellis Marsalis is the brilliant pianist, composer and educator who spawned both a family of jazz giants and, through his mentoring and his teaching, several generations of young and influential jazz artists. If it took the emergence of Branford and Wynton, and then Delfeayo and Jason Marsalis to bring attention Ellis way, there is no question that the father's example set the sons on the path of international influence and distinction. You can hear it in their music and their passion for music.
Meet the Marsalis-family patriarch in a spellbinding evening of solo jazz piano, with repertoire from his newest CD, An Open Letter to Thelonious Monk, and other stellar jazz standards. The concert will take place at the Coral Gables Congregational Church, located at 3010 DeSoto Blvd in Coral Gables.
