I think this is one of Wynton Marsalis's finest recordings. The compositions are complex, but the more you listen to them, the more you appreciate them. The musicianship is superb. Copying Miles? I don't think so. This is thoroughly creative, original, and outstanding -- one of my favorite jazz albums. I've been listening to this for 25 years, and I still love it.

I am surprised how few reviews there are of this album, and the fact that one person gave one star has skewed the overall rating. This is a recording of Wynton in his youth, and he still has the influence of mid-60's Miles Davis (very much like the album ESP). However, Marsalis' inflections, range of dynamics, and fluidity on his instrument is at his peak. In fact, it is difficulty to find any trumpet player that has come out in the past 30 years that can combine articulation (his ability to flutter his stacatto is like a hummingbird) and dexterity (the man can fly). This recording lacks the sophistication of albums later than this, but I consider that a positive (Marsalis seems so cool and restrained in later recordings). For the low price of this CD, this is definitely worth owning.

I 'm listening to this recording continuously for the last 20 years! Modern jazz at it's best. The compositions have become modern standards. The sound of both horns are unparalleled. The way the whole band cooks is powerful. If you want to clear up your ears and mind from mess, listen to this. On my top 20 list.

Do not let the one star review skew your consideration of this recording. This is certainly not a poor recording! This is some of the best modern jazz available from an excellent performer and composer! The music ranges from rhythmically complex modern bop to modal jazz. In all cases, the playing is inspired and competent, with a very tight rhythym section.

To call this drivel is absolute nonsense - this is inspired, modern jazz at it's finest. If you enjoy music from Mile's Davis, Joe Henderson, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Art Blakely and the likes, this is gping to be enjoyable for you! I highly recommend this recording to any jazz lover! An excellent performance.
