Editorial Reviews

In his early years after leaving Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Wynton Marsalis strode forth with this excellent recording, his second as a leader, done in tandem with brother Branford, also out of Blakey's herd. The combination of the two siblings created quite a buzz in the music community, and this recording, which may stand the test of time as his finest, is one of the more solid mainstream jazz statements from the Young Lions movement of the early '80s. Top to bottom, this music sings, swings, simmers, and cooks with a cool verve that, in retrospect, would turn more overtly intellectual over time. A command of dynamics akin to those of Charles Mingus creates a signature sound, heard clearly in the opener, "Knozz-Moe-King," fueled by supercharged bop; the bold, extroverted, and precise trumpeting of the leader; and Kenny Kirkland's complementary piano comping. It could be the best single track of the entire recording career of Wynton. Ranking close behind is the tick-tock drumming of Jeff Watts, informing the pretty albeit dark musings of the brothers during "Fuchsia," and the sighing horns, samba bass of Phil Bowler, and stop-start modernities of an utterly original "The Bell Ringer." A bouncy treatment of the standard "My Ideal" shows Wynton's singing tone through his horn, a great interpretation of Thelonious Monk's "Think of One" is totally sly and slinky in low-register hues, and triplet phrases that have become a staple of the Marsalis musical identity accent "Later," adapted from a phrase similar to "Surrey with the Fringe on Top." At their unified best, Wynton and Branford shine on the tricky "What Is Happening Here (Now)?," a spillover residual of their time with Blakey. Think of One is a definitive statement for Wynton Marsalis, and though other efforts turned much more elaborate, none have been played better -- with more palpable spark and original ideas -- than this fine studio date. ~ Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide

This is one of Marsalis' early efforts. I often worry about CD reissues that "remaster" the original using compression. This transfer seems to have left the original dynamic range of the recording in tact.

Wynton was still in his twenties when he made this album, but he certainly got it right. Terrific solos (by him and other members of the band), fantastic composition, and wonderful production make this an important recording to own. My favorite tune? Melancholia. The shortest tune, yet the one that touches my soul the most.

Wynton is an Artist whose music shouldn't be encapsulated by such a narrow term as music. Time and time again, as on this second album, Wynton allows us to embark upon sojorns through eternity with him. He recants his souls' reverie against the ageless canvas that is hidden beyond black holes and distant universes. He is a dreamer who has never forgotten a single moment of any lifetime. He is an embracer of his art, his purpose and his eternity and his music is a reflection of this.

This album, Black Codes, The Midnight Blues and countless others prove out this simple thought about a simple man and his music who embraces eternity and generously shares it with all who are willing to hear. If you don't hear all of that when you listen, then you aren't listening...

I had to chime in here, since I have no idea what the guy who gave this CD a 1 is talking about. I see no reason to worry about what Wynton says with his mouth, rather I listen to the music. I owned this CD for a few years and sold it when I needed money. Now I have money and bought it again. Haven't listened to it in about 8 years and I still love it. I think it has a lot of different textures and varies it's mood yet it stays together coherently. It is presented as a sequence of songs that flow well. I am into Metheny, Davis, Coltrane, Bela Fleck, African music, Latin music, rock, am all over the board really. I have about 100 jazz CDs and this is among the best of them. Some of Marsalis' music gets to New Orleansy for me, but this one isn't as much so.
