Product Description

Live at The House of Tribes is a superb new live album from the Grammy and Pulitzer Prize-winning trumpeter, composer, and bandleader Wynton Marsalis. It was in December 2002 that Marsalis and his quintet settled in for the first of what has become an annual winter performance at The House of Tribes, a funky and intimate community-run theater on the Lower East Side of Manhattan that also plays host to theater, dance, astrology, photography exhibits, and more. Marsalis led his quintet through a blistering set of hot, swingin' jazz. This is Marsalis' first live jazz album since 1999's Live At The Village Vanguard boxed set. Blue Note. 2005.

Amazon.com

Wynton Marsalis headlines this lively, Night of the Cookers-type gig, recorded in Manhattan in 2002. Joining him on the frontline is his long-time partner, alto saxophonist Wessell "Warmdaddy" Anderson, backed by a rhythm section featuring bassist Kengo Nakarmura, drummers Robert Rucker and Joe Farnsworth, and pianist, Eric Lewis. The material is what you would expect on informal set like this: A riffing romp through Thelonious Monk's "Green Chimney’s," two bouncy renditions of "Just Friends," and "What is This Thing Called Love," the enduring ballad, "You Don’t Know What Love Is," Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee," delivered at bop-speed, and Paul Barbarin's Crescent City chaser, "2nd Line." Add percussionist Orlando Q. Rodriguez's Latin tinges and brother Delfeayo's on-point production to Marsalis’s flawless flights, and you have a document that captures improvisation in the heat of performance, forged by the sacred give-and-take between the artist and the audience. --Eugene Holley, Jr.

Format: Audio CD
This is a great example of a live album that really conveys the upbeat mood of both musicians and an audience, a synergistic relationship in which the crowd actually enhances the flavor of the music. This is not glasses clinking and posers hooting to get their hipness on record, this is the sound of a good time.

Recorded in a small-sounding theater in New York, ten days before Christmas, 2002, "House of Tribes" finds Marsalis fronting much the same group as is featured on "The Magic Hour." They fly through six mostly long songs (the average is about 10 minutes) including "Green Chimneys," "Just Friends," "What is this Thing Called Love" and "Donna Lee."

I bought this last night and have been listening to it all day while working and putzing around the house. The record shifts smoothly from strutting, upbeat numbers to smoother affairs and ends with the rousing, tambourine-goosed "2nd Line." I think I'm going to be playing this for quite a while and I really wish I'd been there when it happened.

Format: Audio CD
Wynton Marsalis' vita sheet has become so impressive that it's easy to take it as a given that he's the world's greatest trumpet player if not musician. He does nothing on this session to disturb such an estimate. If comparisons are to be evoked, the primary influence on Wynton's playing, at least to my ears, is Clark Terry rather than Diz, Miles, or Clifford. Like Clark, he alternates between a classically pure sound and occasional vocal effects, and he's continually playful and engaging, teasing his audience with minimal virtuosity before cutting loose. If his playing lacks passion and drama, it more than compensates with consummate technical command and undeniable flare.

This program appears calculated to appeal to a wide audience. "Green Chimneys" is an extended two-chord open piece introduced over an infectious boogaloo street beat. "Just Friends" is taken at an uncharacteristically laid-back tempo, with latin percussion and heavy emphasis on the off-beats. "You Don't Know What Love Is" and "Donna Lee" are the two least compromising selections on the date, both played in the tradition of Bird and Miles. "What Is This Thing" returns to the accessible rhythmic feel of "Just Friends," and "2nd Line" is an elemental New Orleans march.

Although producer Delfeayo Marsalis seems to have put microphones at select tables to convince us that the audience was eating up every single note, he's otherwise to be commended for the audio quality of the recording. The sound has depth and natural presence without the annoying boosting of the bass that's endemic on jazz recordings these days. The other musicians on the date--especially Wessell Anderson--manage to impress while attending to their supportive roles. Overall, a solid entry for Mr. Marsalis.

I have read many of the reviews and I must say that I'm so sorry that it has taken me so long to write a review. I was there at the concert that produced this great album and I want to let everyone know that microphones were not placed at every table. The theater which created this album is a small community theater which can only fit 30 people inside. It is extremely raw. The light board is made from a cat liter box with dimmers (normally used in a house) connected to it. The stage is very very small. Actually the theater is a manhattan flo-thru apartment converted to a theater. The microphones were placed where no one could see and everyone actually forgot that we were even recording, oh yeah and by the way the entire staff of the evening was young people from the community eager to learn about producing. This was an evening never to be repeated because it was an effort of love. NO big pricetag, most of the workers and recorders were volunteers, but our philosophy is that all things are possible with love, intellect and force. When you listen to this album you are listening to "the impossible" nothing staged just a whole lot of feeling being shared by all, musicians, audience and crew. HOPE YOU ENJOY!

This recording captures Wynton's live performance in an intimate setting as if you were seated third row center. Don't let others convince you that the audience gets in the way of the performance. This is pure give and take-between musicians and listeners. This is a true jazz experience as close as you'll get without being present at the recording.

This recording certainly isn't as polished as "The Magic Hour" (highly recommended, by the way) but there sure is a lot of fun documented here. The opening track is on fire. Explosive. If only all the tracks were as strong. In fact, the album tends to lose the fire as the songs come to an end - but don't let that discourage you. For the most part - it's a good live recording. The sound quality is top notch. Highly enjoyable if you like the traditional jazz scene...

Jazz critics have been hard on Wynton Marsalis because of his analytical style. If you are familiar with his work I think you can hear what the critics were talking about but I never thought they gave him enough credit for his incredible technique and creativity. On this recording he has created something special and the tired old criticism of his over-analytical style will be put to rest. The venue is intimate and the crowd response adds to the enjoyment of the listening experience. The sound quality is excellent and his ensemble is first-rate. Wynton comes alive in this recording and his improvisation is fresh, exciting and revealing. Wynton has a love for jazz that shines through in this live set. I personally feel it is one of the best jazz albums of the year and should be included in any jazz collection.
