THIS WEEK ON THE DIFFERENCE (7-13 August 1995)
If there's anyone we've ever met here at THE DIFFERENCE who personifies the
phrase "Renaissance Man," it's got to be this week's special guest: BRANFORD
MARSALIS. Here's a musician's musician who's scored films for Spike Lee,
toured the world with Sting and the Grateful Dead, assembled the house band
for Jay Leno's "Tonight Show," and then LEFT that gig to tour with his latest
ensemble, BUCKSHOT LEFONQUE.
