Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet

The Oxford American magazine is excited to welcome the Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet to the South on Main stage! This is the second show of their Jazz Sub-Series. The series is made possible in part by presenting sponsor UCA College of Fine Arts & Communication, as well as their season sponsor University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

“[Marsalis’s] playing is eccentric within graceful boundaries, concerned with polyrhythm as science, history and gamesmanship, full of technique used to nonslick ends...Discipline and strategy are written deeply into the band.”
—New York Times

The youngest of siblings Wynton, Branford, and Delfeayo, Jason Marsalis and his brothers and father comprise New Orleans’s venerable "first family of jazz." Jason is well known for his fine drumming, working with his father’s group, as well as the great pianist Marcus Roberts. He also performs as a vibraphonist with various groups—including his own and was the winner in the 2013 Downbeat Magazine’s Critics Poll in the category of Rising Star Vibes.

Since 2007, Jason has been actively touring with his Vibes Quartet, which includes bassist Will Goble, drummer David Potter, and pianist Austin Johnson. The band performs original music, as well as many hidden gems in jazz literature and beyond. Jason’s playing is unique and draws from a wide range of influences, and his knack for selecting compositions that cover a range of moods, rhythms, and emotions make for a compelling artistic statement.

His release, Heirs of the Crescent City (Elm Records), turned out to be a sort of love letter to New Orleans, utilizing its traditions while expanding on them with new ideas. This original music was inspired by such artists as Louis Armstrong, Warren “Baby” Dodds, Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, The Wild Magnolias, James Black, the Meters, Eddie Bo, and the recently departed Allen Toussaint. All of the elements of New Orleans music such as traditional, Mardi Gras, funk, and second line are represented on the album.
