This will be short. It is worth the price of this album just to hear the Branford and Harry Connick Jr. duet Carolina Shout. That being said, all of the other tracks on this album are excellent. From Jungle Blues to Doug Wamble's solo guitar on Autumn Lamp, with this record you get a pile of blues and at the same time gain an appreciation for Romare Breaden's art. A must have. Branford keeps outdoing himself.

I find much of the debate raging here quite ideological in nature. Let's listen to the music. And this in many ways seems to go more into the direction of some of Branford's older recordings, and Wynton has a strong impact on this session, it seems. So for those who cherish that, this CD is an asset. For those, however, who rather look for something like Branford's more recent stuff, this CD will be a disappointment. Characteristically, you'll find just one original composition by Branford (and he definitely has written more convincing pieces). Some more words. The CD has much blues, and some of Wynton's performances are just great. The interpretation of J Mood, for instance, is marvellous. The appearance of Doug Wamble on the guitar (he also has a solo number) is quite refreshing. To conclude, I find that this is a strong CD, but not necessarily a step forward, nor the best that Branford Marsalis has ever made (but he also produced some worse albums).

Reading the negative reviews has prompted me to write and I am wondering if these reviewers read Robert O'Meally's liner notes for each piece of Bearden's art. This album is a brilliant fusion of two art forms. Each track masterfully adapts to a title of art. The creation of visual music is crafted perfectly on Bearden Revealed.

Whenever a jazz artist goes back to the roots, there are critics who brand his efforts as 'nostalgia', as maneuvres in recycling the all-too-familiar. As to this record, nothing could be more remote from the truth. It's one one of my favourite albums of 2003 - and there aren't too many, let me assure you of that. What Branford and his ensemble(s) achieve on this album is a celebration of the best traditions in jazz - the swing, the tenderness, the passion and -last but not least- the humour that pervade so much of classic jazz, both in concert and on disc. This is a record to enjoy alone or with friends, a perfect blend of the old and the new.

I suggest spending some time browsing the works of Bearden online while listening. This isn't a LIVE CD as the Amazon listing would suggest. RecordedÊJune 23 - 25, 2003 at Clinton Studios, New York NY. This disc, comprised entirely of newly recorded music, was produced by saxophonist Branford Marsalis in celebration ofÊThe Art of Romare Bearden, the major retrospective that opens at the National Gallery of Art inÊWashington,ÊD.C.Êon September 14 and subsequently travels to museums inÊSan Francisco,ÊDallas,ÊNew York and Atlanta during 2004 and 2005.

É claro que o jazz foi assassinado mas, como diz a lei, sem corpo não há crime. Romare Bearden é meu artista preferido quando o tema é jazz. Suas colagens, pinturas e demais loucuras estéticas parecem transbordar da superfície e saltar sobre nós, como que nos convidando a ouvir, dançar e curtir o jazz. Não haveria melhor capa para o excelente cd do integrante mais endiabrado da família Marsalis. Ao contrário do comportado virtuose Wynton, Branford passa aquela coisa que tanto aprecio no verdadeiro músico de jazz: a espontaneidade. A capacidade de levar na brincadeira toda a seriedade que tem cercado a escola de tradicionalistas, comandada por seu irmão do alto da torre do Lincoln Center. Branford, ao encontrar o corpo do jazz estendido no chão, solta profundos gritos de dor, lamentos sinceros de angústia e, a seguir, sai em disparada, brincando, sorrindo e improvisando como a criança que, após o enterro do pai, encontra seus amigos em plena algazarra. O jazz tem dessas coisas.

É claro que o jazz morreu. Mas, enquanto o corpo não aparece, podemos nos divertir muito com esse excelente saxofonista, genial e moleque, que é Branford Marsalis, revivendo clássicos imortais do jazz. Recomendo.
