Marsalis Music to Launch “Honors Series”

Marsalis Music is launching its Honors Series recordings of well-known, but often under- appreciated, musicians, beginning with drummer Jimmy Cobb and percussionist Michael Carvin. Both artists will appear on quartet discs produced by Branford Marsalis (pictured), both to be released on March 7.

Alto saxophonist Andrew Speight, pianist Ellis Marsalis and bassist Orlando LaFleming will join Cobb on his album, while 60-year-old Carvin will be accompanied by pianist Carlton Holmes, tenor saxophonist Marcus Strickland and bassist Dezron Douglas.
