Scenes In The City (1983) introduces the work of Branford Marsalis as a leader. Branford, the saxophonist among the New Orleans Marsalises, has received less than his due because he shares his surname with a certain young trumpet player.
This record should rectify that situation, for Branford Marsalis is one of the very best saxophonists of his generation. He swings aplenty; plays long, florid lines rich in melodic material and rhythmic invention, possesses a soft, warm contemporary tone that serves him well on ballads, at which he, unlike many of his colleagues, excels.
