The Branford Marsalis Quartet wsg guest-vocalist Kurt Elling at Goshen College Music Center

The Branford Marsalis Quartet will be joined by guest-vocalist Kurt Elling in a singular collaboration of musical forces. Following the format of a standard jazz quartet with vocals, the collaboration between jazz’s most intense band and one of jazz’s foremost singers will prove to be anything but standard.The tight-knit working band featuring Marsalis on saxophones, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass and Justin Faulkner on drums rarely invites other musicians into the folds of their nearly telepathically cohesive unit, but Elling brings a deep jazz vocabulary, technical versatility and outstanding intonation to the group.
