Main Stage Jazz

A virtuoso jazz saxophonist with a wry improvisational sense, Branford Marsalis is a boundary-pushing performer who has explored an array of styles from post-bop and traditional jazz to classical, funk, hip-hop, and rock. Initially emerging in the 1980s to widespread acclaim alongside his brother, trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, Branford drew early comparisons to idols Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane, and Sonny Rollins. Ever creatively restless, he branched out, playing with Sting, Béla Fleck, Bruce Hornsby, as well as his own genre-bending side-project Buckshot LeFonque. He brings the same adventurous, exploratory approach to his recordings, investigating aspects of the blues on 1992's Grammy-winning I Heard You Twice the First Time, leading his harmonically sophisticated quartet on 2000's Grammy-winning Contemporary Jazz, and collaborating with vocalist Kurt Ellingfor 2016's poetically atmospheric Upward Spiral.

“BRANFORD MARSALIS’ COMMITMENT TO THE QUARTET FORMAT HAS NOT WAVERED AND THE CURRENT INCARNATION HAS PROVED ITSELF TO BE A VITAL PRESENCE IN CONTEMPORARY JAZZ” - JAZZWISE
