5.0 out of 5 stars The Forerunner of the Traditional Jazz Renaissance January 26, 2004
By Musings
Format:Audio CD
Hard to believe now, but 20 years ago most commercially successful jazz could either be classified under trendy funk (anyone remember Herbie Hancock's "Rockit"?), electronic noodlings aimed toward a mass audience (Weather Report, Return to Forever) or MOR/adult contemporary piffle (Spyro Gyra). Coincidentally, it was at that point that I reached back toward the pioneers of the `50s and '60s -- Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and McCoy Tyner. Imagine my delight when a friend of mine told me of an artists who had the same influences -- and not only was he still recording, he was only in his early 20s!
Wynton Marsalis put himself on the map with this, his second album. From the atonal "Knozz-Moe-King" to the lament "Melancholia," Marsalis covers a wide range of styles, yet stays within himself. (Subsequent releases would frequently show even broader ambitions, but occasionally his reach would exceed his grasp.)
This album is the first one to pick up for those interested in hearing how jazz stepped back from the dead end of fusion back toward its roots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flows well - excellent music May 4, 2012
By Paul T
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars real jazz June 4, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Listening to the excerpts of this CD on amazon, I realised I have this album on cassette (some friend taped it for me many years ago). This was a discovery for me in the jazz world, and has been one of my initiation albums to real jazz. The music is excellent, and Wynton plays beautifully. I immediately became a Marsalis fan, and a trumpet lover (I used to prefer the saxophone). You won't be dissapointed by this album. I've listened to many other W. Marsalis albums, and this is surely one of his best...despite his young age. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good digital transfer June 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.
