"Seven for Saturday" is a great way to see some of the men and women of jazz in action. Today, you get to sit back and enjoy the musical stylings of Branford Marsalis!
"This New Orleans native was born into one of that city’s most distinguished musical families, which includes patriarch/pianist/educator Ellis and Branford’s siblings Wynton, Delfeayo and Jason. Branford gained initial acclaim through his work with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and his brother Wynton’s quintet in the early 1980s before forming his own ensemble.
