If you happened to miss the rare of event of the entire Marsalis family performing onstage together for the first time, then the DVD of the live performance is the next best thing to being there. “The Marsalis Family: A Jazz Celebration” concert was held on August 2001, in honor of the father Ellis Marsalis’ retirement from the “University of New Orleans”. The DVD captures not only the unique essence of live jazz, but also chronicles one of modern jazz’s most talented and notable families. For those who know jazz music, the name Marsalis is as familiar as Louis “Satchmo”Armstrong.
