OSF: All in the Family

Keeping it in the Family is this week's Old School Friday meme theme. Here's the Marsalis Family of New Orleans, playing Swinging at the Haven: Branford, Delfeayo, Jason, Wynton and Ellis Marsalis, the dad on piano. I'm late, but I didn't want to miss OSF.



DeBarge, "Love Me In A Special Way"



The creators of the Old School Friday meme are Mrs. Grapevine and Marvalus at Conversations with Marva and has these rules, if you want to join this theme party.

Oh, the Marsalis Family! Good one!!!

Misinterpreting the theme again - intentionally, again - I posted a song that weaved its way through my family history: Heart and Soul - A musical family thread for over 40 years

I love the Marsalis Family. They were all in DC this week at the Duke Ellington Jazz Fest.

The Marsalis family is the first family of jazz imo. I have a New Orleans vibe going myself.

Happy OSF.

Another immensely talented jazz family. Thanks for posting this even tho OSF was half over--it's *never* too late for OSF.

Have a great weekend!

Extremely magnificent choice in the Marsalis family. Of course you have an advantage being from NOLA but it is still an outstanding choice. I love the DeBarge choice as well.

Love, love, love the Marsalis pick.
Debarge is a family that has seen many ups & downs but the talent is undeniable.

Sticking to your Nola roots, I see...LOL...

Good choice...I was totally in love with DeBarge back in the day...it's a daggone shame what happened to them...

Happy OSF!
