Branford Marsalis Quartet
Venue: Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall
Tickets start at $59.00
Saxophone superstar Branford Marsalis returns to the Center to blow the house down with his spectacular improvisations. A three-time Grammy-winner and NEA Jazz Master, he has earned accolades not only for his incredible jazz performances, but also for his film and theater compositions, his performances of classical music and his dedication to music education. His opening act, Yuko Mabuchi, first studied classical piano in her native Japan, but discovered her true passion after hearing the music of Oscar Peterson and Herbie Hancock. She set her sights a career in jazz, and has been dazzling audiences with her fiery and classical-tinged playing.
