Trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis danced, played, snapped his fingers, and did all he could to create a second-line/Congo Square-type atmosphere in Syracuse on Saturday night.  He was the featured guest for the CNY Jazz Sitrus After Hours program at the Sheraton Hotel.  We caught a portion of the show. Here are some of the photos.

Delfeayo plays with Larry "The Loot Man" Luttinger on drums.

Larry and Margaret Luttinger dance to the sounds of Nancy Kelly at Friday night's Sitrus event.

Larry and Margaret Luttinger groove to the sounds of vocalist Nancy Kelly at Friday night’s Sitrus event. Larry is one of the few producers/drummers who has the dance moves to match his musicianship.

What a way to kick-off 2015’s music season.

Last night’s Jazz at Sitrus event was filled to the brim (restaurant and bar) to take in the musical experience that is Nancy Kelly.  Kelly was backed by the usual suspects: Losito (organ), Kelley (drums) and Carello (sax). If this is any indication, the January Jazzfest should be massive. Kelly will be a featured artist at that event, which will be held January 25 in Baldwinsville.

Nancy Kelly and one of her students, Will Gorman, have an old fashion skat-off before the show intermission last night.

Writer/Editor Russ Tarby (left) and Music Executive/Drummer Larry Luttinger have made some great contributions to Central New York arts scene. We first met Russ when he was the go-to-guy for music at the New Times about two decades ago; we met Larry when he was first putting together the Jazz Arts Foundation. They are pictured here at Tuesday’s Jazz Central Holiday Reception.

CNY Jazz Executive Directior Larry Luttinger, Will Holton, Kathy Goodnough and Common Council President Van Robinson at Jazz in the City last night (Oswego Street).

CNY Jazz Executive Directior Larry Luttinger, Will Holton, Kathy Goodnough and Common Council President Van Robinson at Jazz in the City last night (Oswego Street).

Will Holton fan Kathy Goodnough had seen the smooth sax player perform at a previous Jazz in the City event and decided to come out to last night’s party. She seemed to enjoy everything from his Grover Washington, Jr. cover, to his audio acrobatics created via the talkbox. Toward the end Holton, who is based in Buffalo, even performed a “saxbox.”

Holton was the featured player along with Grupo Pagan.

The event was held a stone throw from Westside Academy at Blodgett along the Connective Corridor route. Some of the school administrators, busy preparing for the start of the school year, came out to join and enjoy the festivities.
