This year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival’s official poster, House of Swing — Portrait of the First Family of Jazz — was released today and portrays jazz pianist Ellis Marsallis and his sons Branford on saxophone, Delfeayo on trombone, Jason on drums and Wynton on trumpet.

The artwork was painted by Paul Rogers, a renowned poster artist, who created a Jazz Fest poster commemorating Wynton Marsalis in 2002. Rogers and Wynton co-authored the 2005 book Jazz ABZ: An A to Z Collection of Jazz Portraits and the 2012 follow-up, Squeak, Rumble, Whomp! Whomp! Whomp!: A Sonic Adventure.

The limited-edition posters are published by Art4Now and can be preordered or purchased at Jazz Fest. Posters start at $69.
