Branford Marsalis QuartetJazz/Blues, Music
Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre
Saturday, April 14, 2018
Jazz master, renowned Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. Leader of one of the finest jazz quartets today, and a frequent soloist with classical ensembles, Marsalis’ most current recording with his quartet is Four MFs Playin’ Tunes. On this album the song takes center stage, with the band members bringing their considerable musical expertise to bear, as they focus on each tune as an important musical entity unto itself and not merely a vehicle for showcasing individual talent. The Branford Marsalis Quartet is one of the most innovative and forward-thinking jazz ensembles around today.
