On Thursday, during this year’s first winter storm, we filmed the Ellis Marsalis Quintet at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola featuring Ellis Marsalis Jr. on piano, Adonis Rose on drums, Ashlin Parker on trumpet, Derek Douget on saxophones, and Jason Stewart on bass. What a great experience!
All the best to our film’s star: Ellis Marsalis, Jr.!
Looking forward to filming Ellis Marsalis performing at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center for my doc ELLIS.
Last Friday, we had the chance to film the Ellis Marsalis Quintet at Snug Harbor Jazz Bistro for my doc ELLIS. This moment captures Ellis Marsalis on piano and Ashlin Parker on trumpet.
Exciting news: The Jazz & Heritage Foundation awarded Freytag Productions a generous grant for the production of ELLIS.
