O’s Notes: Delfeayo is a consummate entertainer who covers blues, ballads, pop and New Orleans jazz for a super, live set on“Kalamazoo. He takes the lead line on ”Tin Roof Blues” with an abundance of passion, technique, rich tone and gutsy expression. And that’s just the first track. They breathe new life into classic standards like “Autumn Leaves” and “My Funny Valentine”. Marsalis shares the stage with a solid team including the patriarch Ellis Marsalis, Jr. on piano, Reginald Veal (b) and Ralph Peterson (d). It is yet another gem from Delfeayo!
