    The quartet of renowned saxophonist Branford Marsalis has been around for 30 years and is famous for the almost telepathic communication among its members. With a huge repertoire of original music, expressive melodies and bold arrangements, this quartet has been a model for other formations. However, the activity of Branford Marsalis goes far beyond the quartet: he has played with artists such as Sting, the Grateful Dead and Bruce Hornsby, and was Musical Director of The Tonight Show Starring Jay Leno. This time, Marsalis’ quartet will be the luxurious background for a concert with Kurt Elling. The singer, winner of a Grammy, is among the most celebrated singers in the world, having been voted best male singer repeatedly over the years by the specialized press. On this rare occasion, they will present new songs especially written by all the members of the quartet, for this reunion with Kurt Elling.
