Branford Marsalis Quartet: NEA Jazz Master, renowned Grammy Awardâwinning saxophonist and Tony Award nominee Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. Leader of one of the finest jazz quartets today, and a frequent soloist with classical ensembles, Marsalis' most current recording with his quartet is Four MFs Playin' Tunes. On this album, the song takes center stage, with the band members bringing their considerable musical expertise to bear, as they focus on each tune as an important musical entity unto itself and not merely a vehicle for showcasing individual talent. Charles Gans from the Associated Press exclaims, "Saxophonist Marsalis leads one of the most cohesive, intense small jazz ensembles on the scene todayâ¦. This album shows that Marsalis' quartet hasn't skipped a beat with the change in the drummer's chair, effortlessly playing often complex original tunes that are thoroughly modern while referencing past jazz masters."
