Branford Marsalis – Renaissance VG+/VG+

$30.00 Inc. GST

Released in 1987, Branford Marsalis’s album “Renaissance” is a tribute to the rich tradition of jazz. Marsalis, a dedicated proponent of acoustic jazz, brings together a stellar group of musicians to explore a program of ballads that weave through different eras of the genre.

The album features a thoughtful selection of covers, from John Coltrane’s “Lament” to lesser-known gems like Tony Williams’ “Love Stone” and “Citadel.” Marsalis even throws in one of his own compositions, “The Watch (Structured Burnout),” which continues a creative storyline inspired by drummer Jeff “Tain” Watts. The centerpiece of the album is a stunning rendition of Jimmy Rowles’ “The Peacocks,” where Marsalis is joined by the legendary pianist Herbie Hancock and bassist Buster Williams for a truly special performance. Produced by Marsalis’s brother Delfeayo, “Renaissance” is a powerful exploration of jazz’s legacy, showcasing not only Marsalis’s own talent but also his deep respect for the art form’s past and present. The album’s success, reaching number four on Billboard’s Traditional Jazz Albums chart, further solidified Marsalis’s reputation as a leading figure in keeping the flame of acoustic jazz alive.
