The Jazz Hole host Linus Wyrsch talks to the internationally-acclaimed trombonist, composer, producer and educator Delfeayo Marsalis on today’s episode. Together with his fantastic Uptown Jazz Orchestra, Delfeayo Marsalis released a new album in the midst of one of the most bizarre presidential elections this country has ever seen and he called it Make America Great Again!. The phenomenal ensemble takes back that tarnished slogan and runs it up the flagpole of great American music, tracing its sounds from its African roots through the streets of New Orleans to the country as a whole. They pay homage to America’s great cultural traditions—blues, swing, groove and good old-fashioned Southern hospitality. Next to a number of tracks from this brand new album and next to a captivating conversation with Delfeayo Marsalis, Linus also presents two other new releases today: Elevation by the Toronto-based Parker Abbott Trio and Earprint, the self-titled debut album by Earprint, an explosive quartet based in New England.
