The Last Southern Gentlemen


“The Last Southern Gentlemen steps back in time while reminding us of the music’s timelessness.” OffBeat Magazine

What started as a special recording pairing NEA Jazz Masters Delfeayo Marsalis and Ellis Marsalis for the first time soon became a highly sought after show with a uniqueness of its own. The music is relaxed, thoughtful and provocative; paying tribute to the humanity and humility at the center of the Southern lifestyle that birthed America’s original music. Built on the intimacy of ballads and the blues, while embracing grooves and up-tempo forays, The Last Southern Gentlemen is a firm acknowledgement of the existence and importance of sweet, gentle sounds. A live recording will be released during Fall 2017. This show is only available during the 2018-2019 presenting season. Do not miss this opportunity!
