Branford Marsalis

Saxophonist Branford Marsalis has performed pop music with Sting, hip-hop with Buckshot LeFonque, and jazz with a host of giants like Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Art Blakey. His new CD offers another challenge. Marsalis teams with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra on Creation - a collection of the works of various French composers. Liane speaks with Marsalis about his newfound confidence with classical performance and some of the lessons he learned along the way. (17:49) Creation is on Sony Classical
