Double Wide en Newport Jazz Festival: John Ellis Double Wide live <p><strong style="line-height: 1.5;"><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Airs Tuesday, March 26 at 9 p.m. &nbsp;</span></strong><span style="line-height: 1.5;">The tenor saxophonist John Ellis is a commanding instrumentalist with a most gorgeous, </span>carmelized<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> tone. And though he now lives in New York, his band gives away the fact that he learned an awful lot in New Orleans. A chunk of Double-Wide lives there — notably, Matt </span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Perrine</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> (sousaphone) and Jason </span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Marsalis</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> (drums) — and the Crescent City's </span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">carnivalesque</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> and high-stepping timbres are refracted through Ellis' tunes. You can take the boy out of the South, but you can't take the South out of his musical vision. Joining him also are Gary Versace on organ and accordion and Alan </span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Ferber</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;"> on trombone.</span></p><p> Wed, 27 Mar 2013 02:00:00 +0000 25293 at Newport Jazz Festival: John Ellis Double Wide live
