One of the most influential and revered figures in contemporary music, three-time Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis is joined by his renowned Branford Marsalis Quartet.

Marsalis, the NEA Jazz Master, Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee, is equally at home performing concertos with symphony orchestras and sitting in with members of the Grateful Dead, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet. The celebrated ensemble is revered for its uncompromising interpretation of a kaleidoscopic range of both original compositions and jazz and popular classics. 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.”
