O’s Notes: Delfeayo is the trombonist of this talented Marsalis music family. He has studied the art form and continues to grow in his presence as a producer, writer and player. He adds an all-star cast on Minions Dominion including Mulgrew Miller (p), Donald Harrison (sax) and his mentor, the late drummer Elvin Jones. The chemistry between the musicians is excellent whether it is Robert Hurst III walking his bass on the opener, the solos on the title track or the romance of Delfeayo’s lead on “If You Only Knew”, the sound is precise and inviting with a groove that is right on target.
