An Evening with Branford Marsalis

Wednesday, January 15, 2020 • 7:30 pm • Peace Concert Hall

About The Show

After four decades in the international spotlight, the achievements of saxophonist Branford Marsalis continue to grow. He has expanded his vision as an instrumentalist, composer, bandleader, and educator, crossing stylistic boundaries while maintaining an unwavering creative integrity.

The Branford Marsalis Quartet, first formed in 1986, remains Marsalis’ primary means of expression. In its virtually uninterrupted three-plus decades of existence, the quartet has established a rare breadth of stylistic range and a continuity of personnel. The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul, recorded in the spring of 2018, contains the mix of challenging original and classic compositions, and the range of moods from the tender to the explosive that has defined the group. With its focus on melodic strength and extrasensory interaction, the album confirms that the Branford Marsalis Quartet remains a paragon of uncompromising jazz excellence.

While the quartet thrives, Marsalis continues to expand his status as a musical collaborator, dating back to his early experiences as a sideman with Clark Terry, Art Blakey, and his brother Wynton Marsalis and extending through encounters with Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, and Harry Connick, Jr. He has received a series of awards, including three Grammys®, and his citation (together with his father and brothers) as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts.

"Branford Marsalis’ quartet has been a model of daring, unapologetic artistry for the past three decades.” – Jazziz

"His quartet, featuring Eric Revis on bass, drummer Justin Faulkner, and pianist Joey Calderazzo, has become an institution.” – PopMatters

"Together, they play with a deft abandon that often borders on focused chaos.” – All Music

"Lively, collaborative, at times powerful, other times sensual, the Branford Marsalis Quartet is at the top of its form.” – Step Tempest
