Branford Marsalis is…

by Staff on March 5, 2008

Branford Marsalis should be known to every Jazz lover, to those who watched him play the USA anthem at the NBA All-Star game in New Orleans, to the Premo fans or lets say Gangstarr fans, fans of the Jazzmatazz series or whoever saw Spike Lee’s Mo Betters Blues or Men in Black, and really who hasn’t seen the MIBs?

In 1992 he first collaborated with Gangstarr for the track Jazz Thing and later formed the group Buckshot Lefonque to release 2 great and mostly instrumental albums displaying a very broad musical picture. The first one was the self titled Buckshot Lefonque in 94 and the second one was Music Evolution released in 97.

Since I’m trying to keep it more or less hiphop (whatever that means..) I’ll post the Another Day VLS from ’97 which features tracks produced by Dj Premier and guest appearances by Guru and Uptown of Dope on Plastic fame. Enjoy those 18:22 minutes plus the single and video for Breakfast @ Denny’s.

his brother delfayo is nice on the trombone as well.

then there is the small matter of him being a sideman for *sting* and bringing the bassist from his OTHER big sideman gig: darryl jones from the miles davis band.

not sure if you (or dirty water) do re-ups, but that showbiz remix is NOT easy to get–even thru "legit" channels.
