The 3-time Grammy Award-winning Branford Marsalis Quartet performs at the Arsht Center with fellow Grammy Award-winner, vocalist Kurt Elling in a singular collaboration of musical forces!
The quartet has long been recognized as the standard to which other ensembles of its kind must be measured. The tight-knit working band featuring Marsalis on saxophones, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Justin Faulkner on drums rarely invites other musicians into the folds of their nearly telepathically cohesive unit, and Elling’s deep jazz vocabulary, technical versatility, and outstanding intonation will enable the band to perform a variety of material in astonishing new ways.
Opening for the Quartet will be jazz vocalist, composer and Miami native, Carmen Lundy. Hailed by The Evening Standard as “a genuine jazz singer”, Lundy is celebrated throughout the world for her vocal artistry and is highly regarded for her jazz innovation.
