Delfeayo Marsalis (Born July 28, 1965 in New Orleansmarker, Louisianamarker) is an American jazz trombonist and record producer.

He is a member of the Marsalis family of jazz musicians: father Ellis Marsalis, Jr. (piano), and brothers Branford Marsalis (saxophone), Wynton Marsalis (trumpet), and Jason Marsalis (drum set). Delfeayo has two brothers who are not musicians, thus there is not as much mention about them in the media: Ellis Marsalis III (1964) is a poet, photographer and computer networking specialist based in Baltimoremarker. Mboya Kenyatta (1970) is autistic and was the primary inspiration for Delfeayo's founding of the New Orleans based Uptown Music Theatre. Formed in 2000, UMT has trained over 300 youth and staged 8 original musicals, all of which are based upon the mission of "community unity."

While a gifted trombonist, Delfeayo has recorded relatively few albums and is both more prolific and better known for his work as a producer of acoustic jazz recordings. Along with current "Tonight Show" engineer Patrick Smith, Delfeayo coined a phrase that was primarily responsible for the shift in many jazz recordings from rock and roll production to the resurgence of acoustic recording. "To obtain more wood sound from the bass, this album recorded without usage of the dreaded bass direct" first appeared on brother Branford's Renaissance (Columbia, 1986), and became the single sentence to define the recorded quality of many acoustic jazz recordings since the late '80s. He is a graduate of Berklee College of Musicmarker
