Branford Marsalis may be something of a celebrity in the US, but undiluted jazz is the saxophonist's main message, and his band maintains a reputation as one of the tightest, most explosive units on the current jazz scene. This rare UK date is a rare chance for Londoners to catch up with Marsalis's recent work, which extends the minimal motifs of late-period Coltrane with a very twenty-first century spin. When his quartet hits the high gears, their energy and interaction are practically unbeatable.
