musicfest-logo-2016

*UK PREMIERE Growing up in the rich culture of New Orleans, Branford was drawn to music along with his siblings Delfeayo, Jason and Wynton Marsalis, becoming recognised as one of the world’s great jazz saxophonists. He’s always been eclectic, playing with Sting on the Dream of the Blue Turtles tour, featuring in and scoring several Spike Lee films including Mo’ Better Blues, leading the Tonight Show Band and playing classical scores, as well as helming a superb quartet that packed the Forum in the 2009 Bath Festival

We are proud to present the UK premiere of one of his most exciting events. In My Solitude (the title of his latest Sony/Okeh album) is a solo performance for cathedrals and sacred spaces, created anew in each different city. It ranges from standards such as Stardust through to improvisations on Bach, shot through with a gospel influence. It’s different every time, and in the exceptional acoustic of Bath Abbey it will reflect the joyous spiritual energy of a great creative player
