A late night with the Branford Marsalis Quartet
LONDON Southbank Centre / Queen Elizabeth Hall
SE1 8 XX
With the early evening show now sold out, one of the great small bands in jazz today has added an intimate late night show.
The consummate solo skills of the leader Branford Marsalis – immersed in the jazz tradition, but completely of today – interacts with the free-wheeling rhythm section of virtuoso pianist Joey Calderazzo, master bassist Eric Revis and the precocious young drummer Justin Faulkner to make music that is packed with surprising twists and turns and a genuine sense of excitement in its telepathic interplay.
