AllAboutJazz.com is featuring footage of the Branford Marsalis Quartet recording “Whiplash” as their Daily Jazz Video of the Day today! View it here.
You can purchase “Whiplash” as part of the iTunes exclusive Four MFs Playin’ Tunes EP. We were able to get our hands on a few copies of the deluxe 180-gram high definition vinyl version of Four MFs which we offered as a special Record Store Day release in April. We know that it was not available everywhere and the stores that did carry it sold out right away, so we wanted to make sure that our dedicated listeners have a chance to purchase this very special item. It’s available exclusively online at our store while supplies last! Four MFs will be available digitally and on CD August 7, 2012.
Father’s Day Sale!
In honor of Father’s Day (June 17) this month, we are pleased to offer you some special deals good through July 1.
Honors Series Bundle
The Marsalis Music Honors Series is designed to document the music of established, if often underappreciated, giants of jazz.

This bundle includes all four Marsalis Music Honors Series recordings by Michael Carvin, Jimmy Cobb, Bob French, and Alvin Batiste. Available for $36 plus shipping and handling.

It is extraordinarily rare for the musical members of the Marsalis family to all get together in performance. Two concerts, both in honor of patriarch Ellis Marsalis, are captured by Marsalis Music on A Jazz Celebration and Music Redeems. This bundle includes the A Jazz Celebration CD, the Music Redeems CD, and a poster featuring artwork from Music Redeems signed by Ellis Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis, Delfeayo Marsalis, and Jason Marsalis for $40.00 plus shipping and handling.
