4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Lineup assembled by the Great "Tain" Watts June 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To tell the truth what first attracted me to buying this album was basically its the branford marsalis group minus the piano and bass players, and then when I saw that Christian McBride and Terrance Blanchard are on the album bass and trumpet respectfully. I had to get it simply to hear McBride jamming with Jeff Watts & Branford Marsalis and over all I think this is a really good album, its definitely jazz in the vain of The Marsalis quartet which is always highly inventive and by no means ever smooth. This is jazz with a capital "J" or post bop in a Coltrane Wayne Shorter bag. The album starts out strong with Return of the Jitty Man its neat how Marsalis and Blanchard intertwine their lines and play off each other during the theme statement. The two horns in the front line have played together alot and it shows here. McBride sounds great throughout the album and especially on Dancing for Chicken a hoe down of sorts with a funky back beat and a killer bowed bass solo from McBride. This album also is not without some dry humor on The Devil's Ring tone with some funny spoken word dialogue. Bottom line is I would recommend this to fans of The Branford Marsalis Quartet and fans of Christian McBride but I wouldn't say its for people new to jazz or people crossing over from rock or R&B. This is intense serious music that must be taken seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Juan Tainish does it again!! February 3, 2009
By R. Reid
Format:Audio CD
Is there ANY question who is the pre-eminent drummer in all of jazz today?
Jeff Watts does it again. If you're a fan of Branford Marsalis, or Wynton's earlier work, then you already know who he is.

But this time, he comes with a line-up that is akin to an All-Star team in basketball.

Christian McBride on bass,
Branford Marsalis on saxophone,
Terence Blanchard on trumpet,

AND WATTS?!?! Incredible!!

If you remember, this group is three-fifths of the very excellent group that did the music for the "Mo' Better Blues" soundtrack. Under Watts leadership, this group is hard-driving and hard-charging from the opening tip. You will love this disc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tain keeps getting better February 6, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have every commercially available tain-under-his-name album and love this the best. His writing has got even better - more adventurous, complex and playful and it works a treat.

Blanchard (trumpet)and marsalis (sax)play better than I've ever heard them before too - more creative and risk taking than usual and they always pull it off. And McBride isn't too shabby either!

Tain's playing is excellent as always and tends to be even more funky than on previous recordings.

(No offence intended but having no piano keeps the artistic style coherent - on previous recordings with these players the music can be smokin' with the pianist laying out, then piano comes back and the mojo nosedives: it all suddenly sounds old-fashioned and irritating, no matter how good the piano playing)

This CD is more than worth the money for cuts 2 and 3 alone. Hugely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the tunes!! June 28, 2009
By Deb Lee
Format:Audio CD
The compositions on the cd are very fresh and interesting. It probably helps that they are played by world class musicians!! but the variety of this music makes for a very enjoyable listen. I highly recommend The Devil's Ring Tone... the music really tells a story and moves seamlessly through times and feels.
