The JPAC presents It's All About New Orleans


This very special concert is an exciting celebration of the music of New Orleans, dedicated to the legacy of New Orleans’ First Lady of Jazz, Ms. Germaine Bazzle, and the Jazz Master, Mr. Ellis Marsalis, together again for the first half of the evening’s program.

The festivities will then conclude the right way – the only way – with a performance of Duke Ellington’s classic “New Orleans Suite,” which pays musical homage to such Crescent City icons as Louis Armstrong, Wellman Braud, Sidney Bechet and Mahalia Jackson. 

The stage for “It’s All About New Orleans” will be popping with the unmatched piano virtuosity of Ellis Marsalis, the incomparable vocal stylings of Germaine Bazzle, a swinging big band directed by Derek Douget, and the remarkable award-winning dancers of the Lula Elzy New Orleans Dance Theatre.
