Delfeayo Marsalis Presents The Uptown Jazz Orchestra
Trombonist and bandleader Delfeayo Marsalis returns to Des Moines, this time with The Uptown Jazz Orchestra. The hard-swinging UJO is a mainstay in New Orleans jazz clubs, like Snug Harbor. This big band emphasizes groove, riff playing, and the polyphonic improvisation of the New Orleans jazz tradition. The majority of the musicians are Louisiana natives. They range from extremely talented young students to respected veterans, continuing the long jazz tradition of onstage apprenticeship. UJO shows are always a good time, and the band’s soulful soloist get audiences cheering throughout the set.
