Branford Marsalis Quartet- Braggtown



Sensational 2006 release featuring 7 tracks.

SKU: SKU-535 Category:



On Braggtown, named for a neighborhood in Durham, North Carolina, Marsalis delivers a virtual clinic on how to play 21st-century jazz, with drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts, pianist Joey Calderazzo, and bassist Eric Revis. The pieces range from the uptempo “Jack Baker” and “Blakzilla”–Watts’s polyrhythmic props to Godzilla–to the reverent rendition of the 17th-century composer Henry Purcell’s “O Solitude,” and Revis’s intense, long-form composition, “Black Elk Speaks,” complete with his impassioned, Mingusian bass solo, with references to Star Trek: The Next Generation.
