The Branford Marsalis Quartet

with Joey Calderazzo, Eric Revis & Justin Faulkner

Branford Marsalis having a laugh with his quartet

Moving effortlessly from individual virtuosity to breath-taking interaction, the Branford Marsalis quartet provide a masterclass in jazz performance.

Branford Marsalis’s quartet embodies the essence of jazz as they combine bold improvisation with instrumental brilliance. Throughout the years it has always been clear that this is a band that enjoys playing together, and they maintain a musicality and dynamic on stage that sets it apart as one of the great live experiences in present-day jazz. Whether re-inventing standard repertoire or finely-tuned originals, reshaping delicate ballads or hurtling through the fastest of fiery tempos, they never fail to deliver the goods.

This performance will begin promptly at the advertised start time and running time will be confirmed closer to the event.

As a guide, please note that events usually finish by 11pm at the latest.
