Brandon is one of the most nimble, soulful, intense, volcanic, and mercurial modern players out there. He owns any style and it's absolutely inspiring to watch him play... and he means everything he plays. He is also an incredible studio player on all woodwinds. The thing I dig about his playing is that I never know what to expect - because he capable of doing anything on the horn at any time and he is always 150% in. I've learned a lot from watching him just go about his business. Above all else, he is one hell of a nice cat.
