2011 NEA Jazz Master Branford Marsalis represents “the highest echelon of jazz tenor saxophonists” (Los Angeles Times). He returns with his superlative quartet, featuring pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Reevis, and drummer Justin Faulkner. As the eldest musical sibling in jazz’s most famous contemporary clan, Marsalis parlayed his formative experiences in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and his brother Wynton’s band into simultaneous careers as a performer, educator, composer, label owner, and bandleader with nearly 30 albums to his name.

An uncompromising artist and three-time GRAMMY winner, Marsalis’ insatiable desire to expand horizons has found him performing with the New York Philharmonic, embracing hip hop influences with his Buckshot LaFonque project, leading the house band on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and working in the pop realm with Sting and Bruce Hornsby. He won a 2010 Drama Desk Award for his contribution to the Broadway production of August Willson’s Fences, and recorded his acclaimed 2013 live solo recital, In My Solitude, at Grace Cathedral as part of the 30th San Francisco Jazz Festival. But Marsalis is best known as the leader of this extraordinary quartet, a group that plays dauntingly intricate and breathtakingly dynamic music. It’s a powerfully kinetic sound that entails navigating odd meters and eye-blink tempo shifts, captured on his latest Marsalis Music quartet release The Secret between the Shadow and the Soul.
