Album Review

On the first of three volumes, Wynton Marsalis explores ten standards plus two of his originals with his quartet of the period (which consists of pianist Marcus Roberts, bassist Robert Hurst III, and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts). Marsalis' tone is quite beautiful on the well-balanced set; even the ballads have their unpredictable moments. Among the more memorable performances are his treatments of "Caravan," "April in Paris," "New Orleans," "Memories of You," and two versions of "Cherokee."

My Favorite Standard Time

Out of the 3 "Standard Time" records I have (1, 2, and 3) this is the standout. The song choices are good, and Wyntons playing is as always, great! The standouts are Caravan, April In Paris, Autumn Leaves and Cherokee
