The Branford Marsalis Quartet announces the release of their new album, The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul. The new album finds the celebrated ensemble at a new peak, addressing a kaleidoscope of moods with inspiration and group commitment. The quartet that saxophonist Marsalis has led for the past three decades has always been a model of daring, no-apologies artistry, of ever-widening musical horizons and deepening collective identity. With like-minded support from pianist Joey Calderazzo and bassist Eric Revis and drummer Justin Faulkner, the band has long been a model of how to sustain and enlarge a musical outlook that is both historically and stylistically inclusive. The Secret Between the Shadow and the Soul confirms Marsalis’ vision. It is sophisticated, adventurous and anything but defensive, and it captures a great band sounding better than ever.
