    Ellis Marsalis was born and raised in New Orleans, Lousiana—picking up the tenor saxophone as a young boy, then shifting over to piano in high school. Marsalis cut his own path in the burgeoning Jazz landscape of the time by not locking himself into the stylings of Dixieland or Rhytham & Blues, instead forging his own path with other luminaries such as David “Fathead” Newman, Al Hirt and Cannonball Adderly.

    Though he has appeared on countless albums over the years, with nearly twenty to his own credit, Marsalis is maybe best known now for his committment to teaching and progressing the philosohy of Jazz music, as well as rearing his own crew of legendary sons: Delfeayo, Jason, Wynton & Branford.

    About Devin Phillips:

    Born and reared in New Orleans, the cradle of jazz, Devin Phillips' intense affair with the saxophone began at the age of eight. At 14, he was accepted into the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts, whose alumni include Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Harry Connick, Jr. and Nicholas Payton. There, trained in music theory and multi-styles composition, he graduated in 2000 with top honors.

    In 2005, Phillips formed New Orleans Straight Ahead. But in August, Hurricane Katrina muted the music. With all gone, save his sax, and his family scattered throughout the U.S., Phillips evacuated to Portland and reformed New Orleans Straight Ahead with other musician evacuees. Since opening the 2006 Portland Jazz Festival, his signature sound has not only been featured on KMHD-FM jazz radio specials and Northwest festivals, but also in newspaper and magazine articles, as well as online articles.

      These guys are talented as they come. Would be awesome to see true jazz pro before they all die off.

      As I have been a huge jazz fan for many years, I have not had the opportunity yet to see Ellis. All of his sons, Wynton, Branford and Delfaeyo are way talented, got to see where they get it from…

      This would be an amazing experience to hear such talented musicians. I am definitely in need of a night of music and culture.

      Being a music major, I love jazz. I have never had a chance to attend any sort of jazz show, and it would be an amazing experience.

      Wow, I love this… My fiance and I have been taking dance lessons these past few montsh in preparation for our wedding and need something just like this to show off our new jazz/swing skills. Plus, I’ve seen Ellis before a long LONG time ago (like 15 years ago when I was in high school) and would love to revisit that memory.

      We have been in Portland for 9 months, but haven’t been able to afford any shows yet. My job hunt is flat, and we have to stretch every dollar as far as we can.

    23. Shelley A. April 16, 2011 at 2:51 pm #

      This is going to be excellent. Me: winner winner, chicken dinner!
