The 07 congo square rebirth one is at $805 right now. I'm kicking myself for not getting it that year, esp seeing how nice it looks in a couple friends frames. pretty sure pg has that one up as well.


My living room features all four Terrence Osbourne official Jazzfest posters. Two are Congo square posters (Rebirth and Uncle Lionel) then two JF posters (Trombone Shorty and Pres Hall). That's all the artwork in the room. Nothing but Terrence Osbourne.

ooooooooooober jealous.

If only my wife liked them as much as I do.
I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Just bought my Brass Pass... The warning went up yesterday that this is the last week to buy them before they go up in price.

Also - Here's the official poster. No word on a Congo Square poster or not.

House of Swing
Portrait of the 1st Family of Jazz

By Paul Rogers

Witness the legacy of Ellis Marsalis, envisioned in graphic master Paul Rogers’ emblematic image—a musical dynasty that gives new meaning to the idea of home schooling. In addition to being New Orleans’ premier modern jazz pianist, he is a composer and America’s foremost jazz educator. Before joining the faculty at the University of New Orleans he taught at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) where, along with his sons, Dr. Marsalis’ pupils included Harry Connick, Jr. (JF2004), Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, Nicholas Payton, and Kent and Marlon Jordan. Ellis and wife Dolores nurtured the first family of jazz; a family that swings like no other and furthers his prominence. Consider:

Branford brought New Orleans to Lionel, Miles, Dizzy, Herbie, Sonny, Sting, the Grateful Dead & the Tonight Show Band. He garnered three Grammy Awards, two for Best Jazz Instrumental and a third with Bruce Hornsby for Best Pop Instrumental. He ranges widely, performing classical music with the Chicago Symphony, the New York Philharmonic and the Boston Pops, among others. As a composer he earned a Drama Desk Award and a Tony nomination for Best Original Score. With Connick and Habitat for Humanity, he conceived New Orleans’ Musicians Village, providing homes to Katrina-displaced musicians, anchored by the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music.

Wynton (JF2002) was given his 1st trumpet by Al Hirt (JF2000) at age 6 when Ellis was Hirt’s pianist. Wynton earned unprecedented Grammy Awards for both jazz and classical music in the same year (1984), receiving a total of nine Grammys (so far). He cofounded New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center in 1987 and has led its Jazz Orchestra, in showcasing traditional Jazz alongside new compositions from around the globe. Wynton was also the first jazz musician  to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music (1997).

Delfeayo is one of the top trombonists, composers and producers in jazz today, known for coupling technical excellence, invention and imagination with dashes of humor. His mastery of recording technology began at home, when he was challenged to create a sound profile for his older brothers. He has produced over 100 recordings for, among many others, Harry Connick, Jr., Spike Lee & the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (JF2014). His educational efforts include children’s book author and director of the Uptown Jazz Orchestra and Uptown Music Theatre.

Jason Marsalis is the youngest brother. His distinctive, polyrhythmic drumming style was evident by age 12, when he had his first professional gig with his father. Together with percussionist Bill Summers and trumpeter Irvin Mayfield he co-founded the Latin-jazz group Los Hombres Calientes in 1998, which he left at the height of its popularity in 2001 to explore other musical styles. This exploration ultimately led to his adding vibraphone to his percussive talents and the release of several albums featuring him as leader, vibist and composer.

This family of firsts and foremosts was recognized in 2011 with the highest honor in Jazz as NEA Jazz Masters. As if anyone needed more proof of their primacy, it was the first group award ever by the National Endowment for the Arts.  Their appreciation by the NEA, which includes excerpts from Ellis’ acceptance speech on behalf of the family, goes further into their accomplishments than was possible here. https://www.arts.gov/honors/jazz/marsalis-family

Paul Rogers is no stranger to firsts and foremosts. He created the first Jazz Fest poster celebrating a Marsalis: Wynton in 2002. He is the co-author with Wynton of Jazz ABZ: An A to Z Collection of Jazz Portraits (2005; winner of a Bologna Ragazzi Award; a Norman Sugarman Honor and an International Reading Association Children’s Book Award) and their 2012 follow-up, Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!: A Sonic Adventure. Rogers also collaborated on Bob Dylan’s Forever Young (2008) and has written or co-written many other books.

His 2016 silk-screened Jazz Fest Poster is an expansion of the subtle polychromism he explored fourteen years ago in that now-classic companion poster. Rogers’ “soulful precision” style is not an oxymoron in his hands. He is the inheritor of the mantle once worn by the greatest European poster artists of the first half of the 20th Century: Cassandre (French), Hohlwein (German) and McKnight Kauffer (British / American).

Recognizing his signature style, the U. S. Postal Service commissioned five stamps, including the first one commemorating jazz (called simply, JazzStamp) that played to his personal passion. In addition to his rare paintings in galleries and museums here and in Europe, he has received commissions from the National Academy of Recording Arts
and Sciences (awarders of the Grammys) and The New York Times (his self-initiated drawings made on his return a year after Katrina generated an anniversary remembrance in its Sunday edition). His work also appears regularly in TheNew Yorker. He has been honored by the American Institute of Graphic Arts, the Association of Illustrators / London, The Society of Illustrators and Graphis Poster, among numerous others.

I ordered that poster so damn fast.

If Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder were in the same weekend I could probably get my wife back to the Fairgrounds.
