Image and video hosting by TinyPic
A day after the release of his new album, Sweet Thunder (Troubadour Jass), Delfeayo Marsalis will hit the road for the first half of the new year in support of it and bringing good jazz to the world. Sweet Thunder is a project that honors Duke Ellington (who created Such Sweet Thunder in 1957 with longtime collaborator Billy Strayhorn) and William Shakespeare (the man who Ellington and Strayhorn honored with Such Sweet Thunder).

The rest of the Marsalis family will be busy in 2011, especially in January when they will earn the nation’s highest jazz honor – a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award.

Here are the confirmed tourdates for Delfeayo in 2011. Sweet Thunder (Duke & Shak) can be pre-ordered now via Amazon at the link below.
