Wynton Marsalis's "Soul Gestures in Southern Blue" series has been seen as the dark horse of his discography, and to this day, I'll never understand why.
"Uptown Ruler" opens with a majestic procession that leads into the title track, an odd-metered blues, which is perhaps the high point of the album. The album then sinks into the smoldering world of bluesy ballads before finally building to a climax with "Down Home With Homey". Be sure to check out everyone's solo on this track.
The final song is a grand restatement of the opening theme, this time with all horns proudly playing. You will not be disappointed by this CD, although his quintet on this album does have a distinctly different sound from most of his other groups.

I own many of Marsalis' discs and this one is my fave. It is near perfect if not perfect. "The Burglar" is unbelievable - check it. The beginning and continuing background rythym is superb and matchless. This disc bangs booty.
