Grammy Award®-winning and NEA Jazz Master saxophonist

Branford Marsalis headlines one of the finest jazz groups

around. The Branford Marsalis Quartet’s album, Four MFs

Playin’ Tunes, is a nimble and sparkling album that “matter-offactly proclaims that this music isn't about highbrow ideals,

umbrella themes or hyper-intellectual constructs; this is about

four musicians making music and serving the songs” (All

About Jazz). In other words, this just might be the Branford

Marsalis Quartet’s most sublime musical achievement yet.

Enjoy their show in the intimate Recital Hall.

 

"Marsalis leads one of the most cohesive, intense small jazz ensembles on the scene today." -The New York Times
