A blend of jazz styles
on July 31, 1999
Words cannot quite describe Marsalis' "Caravan" solo ... you simply have to listen to it (over and over!) to get the feeling. In addition, the "beat building" of "Autumn Leaves" is nothing less than genius. Marsalis also swings on "Soon All Will Know" and "The Song is You." "Cherokee" (2 takes) provides a refreshing blast of energy, while songs like "Goodbye" are sweet and mellow. Marsalis and his bandmates blend well, with each playing off the others. This is definitely a CD for any jazz enthusiast.
