TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Legendary Branford Marsalis Quartet Brings Expressive Jazz Style to the Bankhead Theater

Jan 11, 2019
From his early acclaim as a saxophonist, Branford Marsalis has stayed the course, bringing new energy and new audiences to the world of jazz. Over the years, he has refined and expanded his talents and his horizons as a musician, composer, bandleader and educator, becoming a twenty-first century mainstay of artistic excellence. Called by the Associated Press, “One of the most cohesive, intense small jazz ensembles on the scene today,” the Branford Marsalis Quartet will perform at the Bankhead Theater (2400 First Street) in Livermore, CA. for one night only on January 21, 2019.

Marsalis grew up in the rich musical environment of New Orleans, the son of famed pianist and educator Ellis Marsalis and the oldest of his three jazz-playing siblings. He formed his own quartet in 1986 and has taken guest turns with such giants of the jazz world as Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock and Sonny Rollins. Among his many credits, Marsalis has composed for Broadway, toured with Sting, served as musical director for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and appeared on numerous other television and radio programs. He is a frequent soloist in jazz performance and, increasingly, in the classical universe as well.

Known for telepathic communication among its uncommonly consistent personnel, the Branford Marsalis Quartet has long been recognized as the standard to which other ensembles of its kind must be measured. They deliver a deep book of original music, replete with expressive melodies and provocative forms, as well as unrivaled spirit in both live and recorded performances.
