Jazz royalty comes to the Kuumbwa Jazz Center in the person of the great sax man Branford Marsalis and his quartet. Son of Ellis, brother of Wynton, the New Orleans-born Branford Marsalis has been exploring the outer reaches of jazz since first emerging from his brother’s band in the mid 1980s. Mainstream audiences probably know him best as the bandleader on “The Tonight Show,” but his collaborations have reached broadly across the artistic universe from Sting to Spike Lee. Most recently, he composed and performed the soundtrack to the Netflix film “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” The Marsalis Quartet plays two shows Monday at the Kuumbwa, 6:30 and 9 p.m.
