Jazz at The Center presents An Evening with the Branford Marsalis Quartet

Posted by PurchasePAC

Jazz at The Center is proud to present the Branford Marsalis Quartet. Known for the telepathic communication among its uncommonly consistent personnel, its deep book of original music replete with expressive melodies and provocative forms, and an unrivaled spirit in both live and recorded performances, the Branford Marsalis Quartet has long been recognized as the standard to which other ensembles of its kind must be measured.

Led by three-time Grammy winner and NEA Jazz Master Branford Marsalis on saxophone, the tight-knit working band features Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Justin Faulkner on drums, and special guest Jon Faddis on trumpet.

Pre-Concert Artist Talk: Join Jon Faddis and PAC Director Seth Soloway for an informal conversation with the artists. 7pm sharp, free with your ticket.

Jazz at The Center events are co-curated by Jon Faddis, Professor and Director of Jazz Performance in the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College, SUNY, and one of the most innovative and inspiring jazz trumpeters of our time. They are one-of-a-kind happenings, festival-style programs that bring together the genre’s greats and rising stars.
