Braggtown

Genre: Jazz; Lead Performer: Branford Marsalis; Producer (group): Marsalis Music

With his band (drummer Jeff ”Tain” Watts, pianist Joey Calderazzo, and bassist Eric Revis), saxophonist Branford Marsalis achieves a special blend of fire and cohesion. Three barn burners on Braggtown flaunt that power: ”Jack Baker” builds scale-based furor; ”Blakzilla” rides an odd-metered groove; and ”Black Elk Speaks” weaves an episodic tale.
