Five years on, Branford Marsalis returns with his quartet to Müpa Budapest. His old/new musical partner, Justin Faulkner, will be behind the drums, and it would be no exaggeration to say the drummer was discovered by Marsalis. As usual, Marsalis, who is one of the greatest saxophone players in the world, will be accompanied by Joey Calderazzo, a pianist who is constantly seeking new paths and challenges, and the Grammy-winning double bassist Eric Revis, whose sound has been described by Ma...rsalis as the 'sound of doom'. The three-time Grammy winner and NEA Jazz Master saxophonist founded his first quartet in 1986, and playing as part of a group has been his favoured mode of expression ever since. At the same time, he has always been keen to explore other possibilities, and over the years his quartet has been expanded to include such special guests as Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Dizzie Gillespie and Herbie Hancock, while he has also played as a duo alongside various piano players, including the aforementioned Calderazzo. In 2015, Marsalis performed a concert in the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco to record a unique solo album, In My Solitude.
His openness as an artist is demonstrated by his involvement with classical music. The works of Copland, Debussy, Glazunov, Ibert, Mahler, Milhaud, Ned Rorem, Vaughan Williams, Villa-Lobos and Sally Beamish all form part of his repertoire, while he frequently performs live alongside symphony orchestras. The Branford Marsalis Quartet has set the standard in the jazz world with its virtuoso playing style, stunningly expressive melodies, incredible musical forms and own rich repertoire of songs.
