Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Eternal (#7 track) from an album “Eternal”.

“Eternal” is an album by saxophonist Branford Marsalis recorded at Tarrytown Music Hall, Tarrytown, New York in October 2003. It peaked at number 9 on the Top Jazz Albums chart.

The Allmusic review by Matt Collar states “Eternal finds saxophonist Branford Marsalis in a contemplative mood performing a mix of original and standard ballads… dedicated in memory to a list of people one can only assume were as influential musically on Marsalis as emotionally. Among them are bassist Malachi Favors, drummer Elvin Jones, saxophonist Steve Lacy, and the one and only Ray Charles. Their spirits are palpable here as Marsalis and his band have clearly documented a handful of quietly beautiful and deeply moving performances”.
