An Evening with Branford Marsalis

  • April 12, 2014 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall Family-Friendly Event

This three-time Grammy-winning saxophonist and composer returns to the Center with his acclaimed quartet to treat us to an evening of unsurpassed jazz music. Branford Marsalis earns praise from audiences and critics alike for his unrivaled technique, awe-inspiring versatility, and innovative approach to music making. Performing with his tightly-knit quartet of musicians — longtime members Joey Calderazzo on piano and Eric Revis on bass with rising star Justin Faulkner on drums — this New Orleans native offers up an impressive collection of original compositions and modern and classic jazz standards. Marsalis was born into what The New York Times calls "jazz's most storied living dynasty," and has shared the stage with such 20th century jazz giants as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and Sonny Rollins.
