One of the members of "America's First Family of Jazz" joins us to talk about music, family, and performance. Delfeayo Marsalis, brother of Wynton and Branford, son of Ellis, and successful jazz trombonist in his own right, has been recording, composing and producing from an early age, with the influence of his famous and talented musical family. We'll talk about his brand of jazz with a New Orleans flavor, growing up with the last name of Marsalis, his 2011 NEA Jazz Masters Award, and the Jazz Arts Initiative.
