    About

    Branford Marsalis continues to thrill audiences around the world while racking up achievements, even after four decades in the international spotlight. From his initial recognition as a young jazz lion, he has expanded his vision as an instrumentalist, composer, and educator, crossing stylistic boundaries while maintaining unwavering creativity. In the process, he has become a symbol of artistic excellence, winning three Grammy Awards, a Tony nomination for his work as a composer on Broadway, a citation by the National Endowment for the Arts as a Jazz Master, and a 2021 Primetime Emmy nomination.

    In this special performance, Branford will be joined by students of UT’s premiere jazz ensemble, the Jazz Orchestra, under the direction of Diego Rivera.
