Join us as we close out the 2008 Greek Theatre season on Sunday, November 16 with An Evening with The Ellis Marsalis Quintet featuring Delfeayo and Jason Marsalis, The McCoy Tyner Trio and Brad Mehldau. This is the first time these renowned jazz musicians will all be performing together on one stage.

It will be a family affair when The Ellis Marsalis Quintet take the stage as Ellis will be joined by his sons Delfeayo on trombone and Jason on drums. Ellis is regarded by many as the premier modern jazz pianist in New Orleans while his sons are on track to follow in their father’s musical footsteps. Ellis’ latest CD is An Open Letter to Thelonius. The Greek Theatre performance will be a unique opportunity to see and hear New Orleans’ venerable first family of jazz performing in Los Angeles.

McCoy Tyner is considered by many to be the greatest living jazz piano player today. The McCoy Tyner trio features Avery Sharp on bass and Aaron Scott on drums. Together they have been making great music since the ‘80s. Leader McCoy Tyner has shaped the sound of modern jazz with his blues-based piano style, replete with sophisticated chords and an explosively percussive left hand has transcended conventional styles to become one of the most identifiable sounds in improvised music. Tyner has released nearly 80 albums, earned four Grammys and was awarded Jazz Master from the National Endowment for the Arts in 2002.

In a rare solo performance, American pianist Brad Mehldau will captivate the audience and offer the opportunity to fully appreciate his virtuosity at maintaining the formal architecture of a piece, all the while exploring its improvisational openings. Deeply reflective but utterly free of constraint, he is always in command of his technical and melodic facilities. Mehldau was the recipient of the Miles Davis Award in 2006, cementing him as one of the defining musicians of his generation.
