Legendary jazz saxophonist, Tony-nominated composer and three-time Grammy winner Branford Marsalis brings his Quartet to Seattle. 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.

Absolutely fantastic. This is one of the best performances I've seen - of any kind. The music is energetic and powerful, but when coupled with the dance the entire event is intimate and viscerally pleasing. Karen Lugo is almost otherworldly while her partner was entertainingly funny. The more modern take on flamenco was unexpected and very welcome, suggesting there's much creativity at work.
