Delfeayo Marsalis: Humanity & Humility

8 01 2015

DownBeat February, 2015

cdelf “The Last Southern Gentleman” marks Delfeayo Marsalis’ first full recording with  his dad, Ellis Marsalis. And as Delfeayo explained to me over a few weeks of  conversation, he didn’t arrive at the title lightly. The idea behind the album is that  warmth and human connection — elements valued by antebellum southern society  — are losing their foothold in contemporary jazz. Delfeayo wants to bring them  back.

Check out the full feature here on Downbeat’s website (and apologies in advance  for the PDF): Delfeayo Marsalis: Humanity & Humility.
