Saxman Branford Marsalis has worked with such jazz greats as Miles Davis and Art Blakey, and he's played with acts including Sting and the Grateful Dead. You may also remember his versatile genre-jumping as Jay Leno's Tonight Show bandleader in the Â´90s.
Most recently, Marsalis has been helping victims of Hurricane Katrina as honorary chair of Habitat for Humanity. He's the driving force behind "Musicians' Village," a section of New Orleans where Habitat-built homes will go to displaced musicians and feature a study/culture center. Today, you can catch this jazzy do-gooder with his Branford Marsalis Quartet for a musical tour of the Crescent City and beyond.
