An Evening with Branford Marsalis
The Palladium // Friday, Jan 26, 8pm ET
Saxophonist Branford Marsalis – NEA Jazz Master, Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee – is equally at home performing concertos with symphony orchestras and sitting in with members of the Grateful Dead, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet. After more than three decades with minimal personnel changes, the celebrated ensemble is revered for its uncompromising original compositions and interpretations of jazz and popular classics. The group earned Grammy nominations for its two most recent albums, Upward Spiral with vocalist Kurt Elling and the live recording The Secret Between the Shadow of the Soul.
