Four MFs Playin' Tunes - The New CD from The BMQ
Branford Marsalis Quartet explores the limits of musical adventure and band cohesiveness on Four MFs Playin Tunes available August 7, 2012. This is the first recording of the tight-knit working band with an electrifying young drummer that joined the band three years ago and the results are a nimble and sparkling album, featuring ambitious original compositions by members of the band, a Thelonious Monk classic, and one 1930s standard. The record blends the beautiful and subtle ballad sounds of the 2004 release Eternal with the ecstatic contrasts of critically-acclaimed Braggtown. This might just be the BMQs most sublime musical achievement yet.
