EDITORS’ NOTES

The New Orleans trumpet prodigy would never record anything as devilishly hot and fast as on this 1986 double album capturing his quartet on a tiny Washington, D.C., stage. Marsalis and pianist Marcus Roberts challenge one another relentlessly, with drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts and bassist Robert Hurst providing nimble support. The highlights include the fiendishly complex Marsalis original "Knozz Moe King" and a hard-swinging "Autumn Leaves", with "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans?" foreshadowing Marsalis' subsequent return to traditionalism.
