UW Oshkosh and its organization Students for Music partner with The Howard to present An Evening with Branford Marsalis on Tuesday, October 15.
Saxophonist Branford Marsalis is one of the most influential and revered figures in contemporary music. The NEA Jazz Master, Grammy Award winner and Tony Award nominee is equally at home performing concertos with symphony orchestras and sitting in with members of the Grateful Dead, but the core of his musical universe remains the Branford Marsalis Quartet. After more than three decades of existence with minimal personnel changes, this celebrated ensemble is revered for its uncompromising interpretation of a kaleidoscopic range of both original compositions and jazz and popular classics.
"Branford Marsalis performs and speaks with a combination of fire and tenderness, with idealism and irreverence." - PopMatters "..a model of daring, unapologetic artistry for the past three decades." - Jazziz
