Tickets on sale now for An Evening with Branford Marsalis at Carpenter Center

World-renowned jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis blows the house down in an evening of dazzling virtuosity, heartfelt ballads, and telepathic improvisations with his famed quartet.

Raised in New Orleans to jazz royalty, Branford Marsalis toured with Art Blakey and Herbie Hancock, and gained fame playing with Sting and as leader of the Tonight Show Band. Beyond performing with the New York Philharmonic or composing for Broadway, Marsalis’ musical core remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet. Since its inception in 1986, the Grammy Award-winning quartet has been revered for its kaleidoscopic range, making it the standard to which other ensembles are measured.
