National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master, renowned Grammy Award?winning saxophonist and Tony Award-nominee Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered and forward-thinking instrumentalists of his time. Leader of one of the finest jazz quartets today--the Branford Marsalis quartet and a frequent soloist with classical ensembles, Marsalis recently recorded "Four MFs Playin' Tunes" with his quartet. On this new album, the song takes center stage. The band members bring 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. These recordings have added light and heat to the music of their time, and this performance will be no exception.
