With each passing year, Jason Marsalis continues to grow and develop as both a composer and performer. His will to swing, and the mature command he possesses over his music, are clearly evident to anyone who’s witnessed a performance by this scion of the fabled New Orleans music dynasty. Jason spent the first part of his career as a drummer, most notably with Los Hombres Calientes, the Latin–jazz group he cofounded in 1998; and with the trio of pianist Marcus Roberts. He took up vibraphone during his tenure with Roberts, and in 2009 released Music Update, his first album as a leader to feature his impressive skills on the instrument. Now an NEA Jazz Master, Marsalis’ most recent CD, 21st Century Trad Band, is the successor to A World of Mallets, which showcased “his sensitivity and dexterity on the vibraphone, with a tight but functional rhythm section as support.” (Financial Times)
