21st Century Trad Band arrives

Welcome to JasonMarsalis.com. Today we celebrate the release of “21st Century Trad Band”, the newest record from the Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet. In the follow-up to last year´s successful release, “In a World of Mallets”, the group expands on its sound and musical possibilities. This album introduces tunes from not only from the band members but two young musicians from New Orleans, bassist Jasen Weaver and guitarist Cliff Hines. These tunes add to an already wide pallete of variety that keeps the music interesting throughout the recording. This record proves that the tradition doesn´t have to stay in the past. Tradition can indeed be brought into the future.

In the meantime, enjoy the new site design. Samples of the new record are available as well as a YouTube clip of the band along with Facebook and Twitter feeds to keep you up-to-date with news and upcoming performances. We hope you enjoy the music and also hope to see you at one of our performances. Thanks.
