Event Details

Saxophonist Marsalis leads one of the most cohesive, intense small jazz ensembles on the scene today.” Associated Press

Jazz Master, renowned Grammy® Award-winning saxophonist and Tony® Award nominee Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. Marsalis is able to blend consummate artistry with thrilling ensemble interplay and has the ability to create jazz-club intimacy on a larger stage. He is a frequent soloist with classical ensembles and leader of the Branford Marsalis Quartet, one of the most innovative and forward-thinking jazz ensembles performing today.

Marsalis’ most current recording with his quartet is Four MFs Playin’ Tunes. On this album, the song takes centre 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.  

In addition to guest turns with a legion of jazz giants including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and Sonny Rollins, Marsalis has performed with artists as diverse as Sting, The Grateful Dead, the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and his boyhood friend Harry Connick Jr. In 2011, he was a group recipient of an National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Award alongside his father and brothers.
