A picture of Branford Marsalis
Growing up in the rich culture of New Orleans, Branford was drawn to music along with his siblings Delfeayo, Jason and Wynton Marsalis, becoming recognised as one of the world’s great jazz saxophonists.

He’s always been eclectic, playing with Sting on the Dream of the Blue Turtles tour, featuring in and scoring several Spike Lee films including Mo’ Better Blues and leading the Tonight Show Band, as well as helming a superb quartet that featured in the 2003 Norfolk & Norwich Festival 

In My Solitude (the title of his latest Sony/Okeh album) is a solo performance for sacred spaces, created anew in each different space. It ranges from standards such as Stardust through to improvisations on Bach, shot through with a gospel influence. It’s different every time, but it always reflects the joyous spiritual energy of a great creative player.
