“The highest echelon of jazz tenor saxophonists.” —Los Angeles Times
Grammy-winning saxophonist, NEA Jazz Master, and Tony Award nominee Branford Marsalis has been called “a sure bet for brilliance” (All About Jazz). Having gained initial acclaim through his work with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers due to his brash and fiery improvisational flights, Marsalis has also performed and recorded with a who’s-who of jazz giants including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, and Sonny Rollins. As the leader of a dizzying array of ensembles ranging from big bands to quartets, Marsalis has become entrenched as one of jazz’s most innovative and forward-thinking musicians. On his quartet’s sparkling new album, Four MFs Playin’ Tunes, the band immerses itself in hard-nosed rhythmic improvisation, nimble interplay, and gorgeous harmony for a knockout performance.
