Branford Marsalis Quartet with special guest Kurt Elling @ Jazz at Lincoln Center

January 20, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - January 21, 2017 @ 11:00 pm

January 20 & 21, 2017 at 8pm

Free pre-concert discussion nightly, 7pm.

In an unprecedented collaboration, the Branford Marsalis Quartet welcomes vocalist Kurt Elling, a rare addition to the rock-solid lineup of Joey Calderazzo, Eric Revis, and Justin Faulkner. Both parties are known for a wealth of jazz knowledge and stylistic versatility. Elling has repeatedly proven his prowess for working with star instrumentalists and quartets, recently winning a Grammy Award for his tribute to the famed collaboration between saxophonist John Coltrane and vocalist Johnny Hartman. Marsalis, too, is a flexible and ambitious artist; best known as a prolific jazz leader and sideman to such icons as Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and Dizzy Gillespie, he is also renowned for his work in classical music and for crossover collaborations with artists including Sting and The Grateful Dead. For this special occasion, the band will perform selections from its Grammy-nominated debut release, Upward Spiral (Marsalis Music). Featuring fresh arrangements of Songbook staples, jazz standards, and standards-to-be from a diverse array of composers, this new artistic alliance promises to be an unforgettable showcase of both instrumental and vocal jazz expertise.
