An Evening with Branford Marsalis
The Branford Marsalis Quartet at Emerson Concert Hall
Legendary jazz saxophonist, Tony-nominated composer and three-time Grammy winner Branford Marsalis performs with his quartet, which also includes Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass and Justin Faulkner on drums. The Emory concert is the group's first performance in the U.S. since the release of their acclaimed album Four MFs Playin' Tunes. Born in New Orleans to one of the most famous families in jazz, Branford attracted attention as a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and his brother Wynton's quintet before emerging as a top-flight bandleader in the mid-'80s. He was the musical director of the Tonight Show for two years in the 1990s, and has collaborated with musicians ranging from Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and Sonny Rollins to Sting, the Grateful Dead and Bruce Hornsby.
