Cara Lieurance talks to Branford Marsalis about everything from his career moves, to today's jazz students, to the longstanding musicians in his quartet, to the books he's read lately (lots of history and non-fiction), in a preview of his sold-out Oct 26th show in Kalamazoo. The Branford Marsalis Quartet takes the stage at 7:30 pm at the Cityscape Event Center, in a concert presented by Fontana.
