    I once saw his son (?) Wynton perform — what a talented family. So sad to hear this news, although of course every life lost to this disease is a tragedy.

    If we weren’t smack dab in the middle of this coronavirus, can you imagine the funeral procession that would have taken place? That would’ve been one heck of an event. My heart goes out to Branford, Wynton and the rest of the Marsalis family.

    This deserved the full piece. Jon was playing tribute. Minutes instead of seconds. C’mon Colbert/editors. 😔

    Jon played beautifully. Hope it would’ve been longer (maybe cbs can put a longer, full clip of it). Rip Ellis.

    So disrespectful from the editing team for cutting the video. Jon, as always, delivering perfection.

    Please more Jon Batiste! Maybe a web-only 20-minute improvization?

    CBS, you have crossed the line. Cutting off Jon Batiste honoring Ellis Marsalis Jr.’s passing from the coronavirus? Ellis and Jon deserved better. Get your act together.
