The three volumes that Wynton Marsalis subtitled Soul Gestures in Southern Blue (of which this CD is the first) are overall rather disappointing. This initial CD is the strongest of the three due to the inclusion of tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson and (on two of the five numbers) drummer Elvin Jones, but overall Marsalis (who was in the final section of his Miles Davis period), although playing quite well, seemed to have hit a dead end. His five compositions lack any memorable melodies and his own virtuosic solos do not have any distinctive qualities; pianist Marcus Roberts occasionally emerges as the top soloist. However, once he had gotten his three-part tribute to the blues out of the way, Marsalis would once again make some giant leaps forward.

Paolo Fresu in 10 Albums

Paolo Fresu is a stream. Of elegance. Of music. Of textures of sound. Of records. But above all, of meetings. His name appears on more than 300 albums, each more varied than the last. But the Sardinian trumpeter has always remained a craftsman of a lyrical jazz, refined and elegant. Shockingly elegant even!
