An Evening with Branford Marsalis

Enjoy an evening of incomparable jazz with three-time Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis. Having gained initial acclaim through his work with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and Wynton Marsalis' quintet, Branford Marsalis later toured with Sting, collaborated with the Grateful Dead and Bruce Hornsby, and spent 3 years as leader of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" band. Marsalis was recently named an NEA Jazz Master, the highest honor that our nation bestows on jazz artists.

This evening he will team up with acclaimed quartet members Joey Calderazzo, piano; Eric Revis, bass; and Justin Faulkner, drums. The Branford Marsalis Quartet is considered one of the most innovative and forward-thinking jazz ensembles of our time.

"Marsalis leads one of the most cohesive, intense small jazz ensembles on the scene today." — AP Associated Press
