He’s the patriarch of one of the most famous families in music, and he’s bringing the holiday cheer from New Orleans to Iowa City. Ellis Marsalis has been a central figure in jazz as both a performer and educator, influencing multiple generations of players. Perhaps the premier modern jazz pianist from the Crescent City, Marsalis boasts a list of protégés that includes Terence Blanchard, Nicholas Payton, Harry Connick Jr., and four musicians who share his last name. This night of holiday music will bring his own considerable talents to the fore.
