Branford Marsalis grew up immersed in music in Louisiana. Along with his brother Wynton, Branford has played a large role in shaping the style and sound of contemporary jazz. Branford has achieved a level of public notoriety that is rare for jazz musicians. From 1992 to 1995, he worked as bandleader for Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, and throughout the 1980s and ’90s, Branford participated in high profile collaborations with rock and rap musicians including Sting, The Grateful Dead, and Public Enemy. Branford has also worked extensively as a composer, scoring over a dozen films and television programs.
Branford Marsalis will make two appearances in Indiana this January.
