Branford Marsalis Talks About Appreciating The Grateful Dead In Newly-Recovered 1996 Interview

first_imgBeloved saxophonist Branford Marsalis famously sat in with the Grateful Dead at the Nassau Coliseum in 1990, producing one of the most iconic performance of the Dead’s thirty-year career. While many have heard the performance, including the infamous “Eyes of the World,” few have heard Marsalis’s thoughts on the collaboration.Fortunately, thanks to YouTube user Josh Daniel, we have footage to share from a great interview with Marsalis in 1996. Held shortly after the death of Jerry Garcia, the interview talks about Marsalis’s work with the group, but dives into numerous topics about the iconic band. It’s interesting to hear Marsalis’s thoughts on how the band truly earned their audience with rigorous touring, how Dead shows were all about the music, and how open-minded the Grateful Dead and their fans were about music itself.You can enjoy this fantastic interview with Marsalis, below.Of course, an article about Marsalis wouldn’t be complete without full audio from the 3/29/90 Nassau Coliseum show.
