We were as well co-ordinating the European jazz concert dates for  Branford Marsalis as a solo artist or with his quartet as well as his duo with Joey Calderazzo from 2012 to 2016.

Unfortunately the increased work for the artists and releases on OKeh Records made it impossible for us to remain as the European jazz agent for this exceptional artist.
