Win Tickets To See Branford Marsalis at Roy Thompson Hall [Contest]

Tweet

Toronto, ON - Branford Marsalis is known in hip hop circles for playing sax on “Fight The Power” for Public Enemy and on “Watch What You Say” featuring Guru and Chaka Khan. He also comes from a family of jazz legends and the New Orleans native is in Toronto for two dates: November 23rd & 24th. This is also a rare occasion when saxophone and symphony orchestra blend their voices.

Luckily for those of you with a deep appreciation of such musicians, HipHopCanada is giving away a pair of tickets to the first person to email jbrown@hiphopcanada.com with the correct answer to the following question: Which Spike Lee movie did Branford Marsalis co-star in 1988?
