Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most influential and revered figures in contemporary music. The NEA Jazz Master, Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee is equally at home performing concertos with symphony orchestras or sitting in with members of the Grateful Dead, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet.
This celebrated ensemble is acclaimed for their original compositions as well as their uncompromising interpretations of jazz standards and popular classics.
The ensemble’s latest project, the Grammy nominated The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul, finds the quartet at a new peak, expressing a variegated range of moods and incorporating classical and operatic elements.
“The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul’s is as immediately intimate as it is infinitely expansive, reflecting a deep interconnectedness between the players.” – DownBeat
“…the Quartet raise the creative stakes to incendiary levels, adding classical and operatic influences to the common jazz menu of blues, swing, and solos, with searing group interplay.”– JazzTimes
