About

A multiple Grammy Award winner as a producer, trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis "solos with authority, inserting musical quotes spontaneously as the mood takes him in different directions" (All About Jazz). He comes from a New Orleans musical family that includes not only his older brothers Branford and Wynton, but also his father, renowned pianist Ellis Marsalis, and his younger brother, drummer Jason. The San Francisco Examiner calls him "one of the best, most imaginative and musical of the trombonists of his generation. His fluid expression and keen melodic sense are especially commendable." Delfeayo plays music from his 2006 release of Minions Dominion, a highly diverse album of acoustic post-bop to modern jazz.
