Branford Marsalis

Da Camera welcomes back NEA Jazz Master, renowned Grammy Award-winning saxophonist and Tony Award nominee Branford Marsalis, one of the most revered instrumentalists of our time. The quartet that Marsalis has led for the past three decades has always been a model of daring, no-apologies artistry, of ever-widening musical horizons and deepening collective identity.  With pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner, the band has long been a model of how to sustain and enlarge a musical outlook that is both historically and stylistically inclusive.
