The entire evening will be devoted to music by the drummer and composer, James (Norbert) Black, a crucial figure in contemporary New Orleans jazz, who died in 1988 at the improbable age of 48. Early on Black became associated with Ellis Marsalis, with whom he had a lifelong working relationship. As a member of Marsalis’ quartet he recorded a number of his compositions in 1962. Black’s expertise encompassed both jazz and rhythm-and-blues and he worked both sides of the fence, so to speak.
