Jazz in balance

(First Photo) Grammy Award and National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters award winner Delfeayo Marsalis gives a hint about balance in music while talking to Kalama Intermediate School students Tuesday afternoon in Makawao.

(Second Photo) While there, the New Orleans jazz legend (from left) jammed with Kalama 6th-grader Iverson Dudoit, 11, and teacher Benny Uyetake during a visit to Uyetake’s Introduction to Ukulele class. Both Uyetake, the school’s musical director and a 2013 Na Hoku Hanohano award winner, and Marsalis were members of the lineup of musicians who played at last week’s Maui Jazz & Blues Festival.
