Featuring Branford Marsalis, Saxophone
From his early acclaim as a saxophonist bringing new energy and new audiences to the jazz art, Branford Marsalis has refined and expanded his talents and his horizons as a musician, composer, bandleader and educator—a 21st century mainstay of artistic excellence.
Some might gauge Branford Marsalis’s success by his numerous awards, including three Grammys and (together with his father and brothers) his citation as a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts. To Branford, however, these are only way stations along what continues to be one of the most fascinating and rewarding journeys in the world of music.
