Branford Marsalis Quartet Friday, July 19
Rarely there are musicians who get such unanimity among critics. Everyone says it's the best soprano in the world and one of the three top tenors. We are also talking about a versatile musician.
The same plays jazz classical music that runs the group's "Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, plays in Sting's band for three years, recorded with the Grateful Dead and Bruce Hornsby, or composed the soundtracks for Spike Lee films .
NEA Jazz Master, his quartet is one of the most stable of jazz. For many years it has been formed by the same musicians: Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass and Justin Faulkner (who has not attained 22 years), to the battery.
It is always an event to hear the Branford Marsalis Quartet. The last time was in the Festival nine years ago.
