TVD Recommends:
Steve Turre and Delfeayo Marsalis at Snug Harbor, 7/19–20

Two world-class trombone players on one stage is a treat anywhere for fans of the instrument and jazz listeners in general. But in the intimate confines of Snug Harbor, it’s bound to be off the hook.

Steve Turre (pictured) has a big profile primarily because of his long association with Saturday Night Live as a member of the house band. But he is also an adventurous musician with serious jazz chops.

I remember hearing him back in the day and was impressed with his passion and improvisational creativity. He also pulled out a conch shell and proceeded to blow a wicked solo. Check the vid–he plays two conches separately and then at the same time!

Delfeayo Marsalis is a jack-of-all-trades musician. He fronts his own band, leads the Uptown Jazz Orchestra every week at Snug Harbor, is a well-regarded producer and also works in children’s theater.

I am also proud to announce for the first time that he wrote the foreword for my upcoming book, Not Just Another Thursday Night: Kermit Ruffins and Vaughan’s Lounge.

The two trombonists are playing two sets both Friday and Saturday nights at 8 and 10 PM.

See you there!
