Reliable unpredictability

Hardly any other jazz musician is as reliably unpredictable as Branford Marsalis. On the road with his quartet for decades, every single concert is nevertheless about the magic of the moment. Nothing is under control, the saxophonist postulates, and starts every evening from scratch, focused and at the highest level. 

Branford Marsalis is a powerhouse. In the personality of Wynton Marsalis' older brother, the iconoclast and the respectful preserver of tradition engage in passionate duels, which he fights out in his music. The saxophonist is an intellectual who has been running up a storm against intellectualism in jazz for decades. He loves provocation and prefers to provoke the pathological provocateurs. His quartet with pianist Joey Calderazzo, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner is not only one of the longest-lived and most stable, but also one of the best-recorded formations in jazz history.
