Album Review

Wynton Marsalis's second of three standard albums was actually released after the third volume. On most of the selections, the brilliant trumpeter is heard in excellent form with his quartet (comprised of pianist Marcus Roberts, bassist Reginald Veal or Robert Hurst and either Herlin Riley or Jeff Watts on drums); tenorman Todd Williams helps out on "I'll Remember April" and altoist Wes Anderson is also added to "Crepuscule with Nellie." Marsalis's tone really makes the ballads worth hearing, and his unusual choice and placement of notes keeps the music stimulating. This mostly bop-oriented set is rounded off by a jaunty version of "Bourbon Street Parade."

I Remember...Yesterdays

Of course, this is a must have for your collection. Almost twenty years have past and this album still resonates ...beautifully precise and simply felt. I remember hearing Mr.Marsalis play "You Don't Know..." at Emeryville's Kimball's East...I was in complete wonder of the breathless notes between the sounds...the pauses richly silent. Of course, I didn't know what love was then...but I knew this album was a must have for anyone wanting to contemplate on the "Indelible and Nocturnal" idea of love...or who wonders in amazement "What Is This Thing Called Love!!?"...An effective meditation...simpy put, this album is a lovely collection of love inspired classics.

Marsalis' arrival on the scene started the "Young Lions" movement and resulted in major labels (most of whom had shown no interest in jazz during the previous decade) suddenly signing and promoting young players.
