Ellis Marasalis Jr Dies After Contracting Covid19


Famed jazz pianist and New Orleans royalty Ellis Marsalis Jr, has died due to complications caused by COVID19...

From NBC Los Angeles
Ellis Marsalis Jr., the jazz pianist, teacher and patriarch of a New Orleans musical clan, died late Wednesday after battling pneumonia brought on by the new coronavirus, leaving six sons and a deep legacy. He was 85.
“Pneumonia was the actual thing that caused his demise. But it was pneumonia brought on by COVID-19,” Ellis Marsalis III confirmed in an Associated Press phone interview.
Four of the jazz patriarch's six sons are musicians: Wynton, trumpeter, is America's most prominent jazz spokesman as artistic director of jazz at New York's Lincoln Center. Branford, saxophonist, led The Tonight Show band and toured with Sting. Delfeayo, a trombonist, is a prominent recording producer and performer. And Jason, a percussionist, has made a name for himself with his own band and as an accompanist. Ellis III, who decided music wasn't his gig, is a photographer-poet in Baltimore.

Kill yourself.

I never heard of this man and I'm a jazz fan. But this is still so sad to hear. Black men rarely live past 75. This man is no longer suffering in this current lifetime on this fuckery we call planet Earth. I hope he enjoys the ancestral realm and have a rewarding next life!

God bless the internet, it's the only outlet for attention you lonely, weird socially inept fuckers can get any attention, I will bet you have no friends in real life or relatives that entertain your psychotic ass. You can always tell on a blog the weirdo's who's only outlet for human interaction is blog drama. Kill yourself, btw from the sounds of it you sound dirty and diseased yourself, I hope this quarantine make a lot of you crazy fucks off yourselves.

This are not RWS poster, they are lonely stalkers infiltrating this blog. Snitch need to block their white asses masquerading as black posters. No sane black posters would be this disrespectful to this jazz royalty. Only lonely hateful krakkas jealous of black excellence.
