      EVENT DETAILS
      Branford Marsalis Quartet

      Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most influential and revered figures in contemporary music. The band leader for “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in the early ‘90s, he is also a NEA Jazz Master, Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee. Marsalis is equally at home performing concertos with symphony orchestras and sitting in with members of the Grateful Dead and Sting, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet.

      After more than three decades of existence with minimal personnel changes, this celebrated ensemble is revered for its uncompromising interpretation of a kaleidoscopic range of both original compositions and jazz and popular classics. After the Grammy-nominated Upward Spiral, on which guest vocalist Kurt Elling was seamlessly integrated into the group, the Quartet has followed up with The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul, its most emotionally wide-ranging and melody driven collection to date. John Zeugner captured the impact of the Quartet in live performance in a recent concert review, calling it “casually confident, professional, cerebral, and supercharged with energy. The Branford Marsalis Quartet…was all of those adjectives and more.”
