After seeing Jamil Sharif at the Maison Bourbon in New Orleans, I picked up a copy of Diversity. I enjoyed the sets I heard and wanted to take home some of his music. This disc not only presents what some would call more traditional New Orleans Jazz, but several styles of Jazz. I have been enjoying them all as the musicianship on this CD is top quality. It takes you through a myriad of moods from the upbeat N Da Pocket to the quiet ballad, True Love. You may not have heard of him unless you've strolled down Bourbon Street and stopped in for a set, but give a listen Jazz fans. You will not be disappointed.
