BRANFORD MARSALIS QUARTET: Jazz À Vienne 2004

Branford Marsalis grew up in a New Orleanian atmosphere, one of the three cities in America as said by Tennessee Williams, he is the oldest son of pianist and educator Ellis Marsalis. Inevitably submerged in music, Branford and his brothers Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason understood right away what they were going to do with their lives. By the time he was working with local bands in his teens, Branford had already chosen his favourite instrument – the saxophone – his first choice was the clarinet. When he entered college, his love for jazz had given him the skills to get his first important jobs with legendary trumpeter Clark Terry and along with his brother Wynton in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers. Branford is a confessed admirer of Don Byas, Ben Webster and Illinois Jacquet, his inspiration comes from straight from those guys.

Branford Marsalis: In My Solitude – Live at Grace Cathedral

Which instrument is the icon of jazz music? I´m not truly worried about answering that question – not even the next one: are solo albums too difficult for the listener? Branford Marsalis is the eldest of four musical brothers from New Orleans – his album recorded at Grace Cathedral – takes us to an uncommon place where sound echoes linking notes and harmonies in a peculiar way.
