iTunes Review

Solo live performance is probably the ultimate challenge for most jazz musicians–improvisation is a high-wire act where good bandmates function as a net. There are no off nights when you play solo—and if you do run out of ideas, you stop or, worse, coast. The first solo effort in a long and storied career of Branford Marsalis, In My Solitude finds the saxophonist (on tenor, alto, or soprano) up to the challenge; he mixes standards, originals, improvisations, and highbrow classical, closing with the theme song to The Carol Burnett Show. All of it resonates elegantly in this landmark setting.

It is rare I write a review

It is rare I write a review of a song let alone a album, but I have to save this well deserves one. The live performance on this album is excellent and the acoustics of the cathedral are amazing in each track. Definitely goes hand in hand together to create some of the best saxophone music I've ever heard!!!
Oh he also is featured in Bradford Marsalis Quartet albums too. Also excellent albums. Thumbs up 5 stars!

transporting sound

This solo recording by Mr. Marsalis allows the listener to take flight, up among the high columns of Grace Cathedral. A very spiritually rich listening experience. Listen to it and know joy.
