Jason Marsalis
The Year of the Drummer

The title alludes to 1998, a year in which an unusual number of drummers have released their own records.

"I started noticing that all these drummers were coming out with albums," said Jason Marsalis, "Donald Edwards, Stanton Moore, who I didn't know about at that time. Brain Blade Fellowship came out, and Jeff "Tain" Watts was working on his album. Then I got a call from Adonis Rose, who mentioned his record. It shocked me because I always knew Adonis as a sideman. I never thought of him putting an album out. I hung up the phone and thought, all right, it's time for me to do one."


Jason Marsalis drums, Antonio Gambrell trumpet, Derek Douget alto + soprano saxophones, Jonathan Lefcoski piano, Jason Stewart bass.
