Saxophone player Branford Marsalis performed in the bands of Art Blakey, his brother Wynton Marsalis, Herbie Hancock and Sting in the eighties, before he started his own band. As Buckshot Lefonque Marsalis was very successful with an eclectic mix of jazz, rhythm and blues, funk, hip hop, reggae and rock. But also behind the scenes – for example as producer of David Sanchez's 'Obsession' - the eldest son of the Marsalis family proves to be a great talent.
His quartet – that consists of Marsalis himself, pianist Joey Calderazzo, bass player Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner - is one of the best contemporary jazz has to offer to date. On their latest album ‘Metamorphosen’ Marsalis again shows that his musical wealth knows no limitations.
