Why See Branford Marsalis?
Jazz Royalty Branford Marsalis Hits the Road
Three-time Grammy Award-winning saxophonist and New Orleans native Branford Marsalis has jazz running through his veins. The sons of a jazz singer and music professor, Marsalis and his brothers have risen to the upper echelons of modern jazz due to their virtuosic playing and technique. In an astounding four decade career, the living legend has performed and recorded with the likes of Miles Davis, Art Blakey and Herbie Hancock.
A musical chameleon, Marsalis is unafraid to defy and blend genres, making him a formidable performer in not only jazz, but classical and mainstream music. Revered for his glowing tone, subtle yet lush phrasing and witty phrasing, the muso and his band don't just play a song, but regularly raise the roof with cathartic flights of intense, visceral playing. Long may the King of the Reed reign!
