BERKSHIRES JAZZ FEATURING JAZZ MASTER DELFEAYO MARSALIS

NEA Jazz Master Delfeayo Marsalis performs his original big-band arrangements in concert with the UMass Jazz Ensemble 1. A member of New Orleans’ fabled Marsalis family, the trombonist par excellence is an amazing composer and arranger. Under the sponsorship of Berkshires Jazz, Marsalis and UMass jazz ensemble director Jeff Holmes have selected a wide-ranging set of tunes for this performance.

Delfeayo has toured internationally with jazz legends such as Ray Charles, Art Blakey, Max Roach, Elvin Jones and Slide Hampton, as well as leading his own groups. Under Holmes’ direction, the UMass Jazz ensemble is one of the top big bands in New England. In this one-time collaboration, they will perform one set of their own material and one set with Marsalis.
