A great pianist. Saw him at least a few times. Evidently a pretty good father, too.

"…. When asked how he could teach something as free-wheeling as jazz improvisation, [Ellis] Marsalis once said, “We don’t teach jazz, we teach students.”


Currently at home with Mister Upright.

Judging by his sons and his music, EM was a very smart teacher and educator . R.I.P.

That would have been an epic second line at his funeral.

It’s a shame New Orleans is in lock-down; he deserves a big jazz funeral.
Maybe later

He gave us three musical sons the great Branford Marsalis, Delfeayo Marsalis, and Wynton. Then his whole life was spend playing and teaching all musicians that asked. Thank you Ellis Marsalis you have left us with so much.

You should not forget Jason Marsalis. He is extremely gifted.

Ellis, like other great musicians, got the best instructors he could find for his sons.
