Jason Marsalis: New Album, North American Tour


Fresh from touring with acclaimed banjoist Bela Fleck and pianist Marcus Roberts, Jason Marsalis returns to his role as band leader and vibraphonist extraordinaire with the release of his latest album, In A World of Mallets, on February 19 via Basin Street Records.

His third release on the New Orleans-based label follows the drum-centric releases Year of the Drummer (1998) and Music in Motion (2000). Recorded in his home town of New Orleans and self-produced, In A World of Mallets is the first official release with his current band, the Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet. For a sample of Jason’s new tunes, listen to “Blues Can Be Abstract, Too” here.

Jason is the son of pianist and music educator Ellis Marsalis and the youngest sibling of musicians Wynton, Branford and Delfeayo.
