NEA Jazz Master, renowned Grammy Award®-winning saxophonist and Tony Award® nominee Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. Leader of one of the finest jazz Quartets today, and a frequent soloist with classical ensembles, Marsalis recently recorded Four MFs Playin’ Tunes with his Quartet, which was released on vinyl in April 2012 and then digitally and on CD in August 2012. On this new album, the song takes center stage, with the band members bringing their considerable musical expertise to bear, as they focus on each tune as an important musical entity unto itself and not merely a vehicle for showcasing individual talent.
