5.0 out of 5 stars one of his best, April 28, 2007
This review is from: Requiem (Audio CD)
"Requiem" has the last studio recordings done by the late piano legend Kenny Kirkland. Kirkland, having died in November of 1998, recorded these with Branford Marsalis in August of that year but never got to return that next fall to complete the session. Marsalis, in the spirit of both veneration and celebration, decided to not complete the album and let the music remain unfinished. It seemed to many of us fans as if Kirkland's very life remained unfinished.

Kirkland always brought the musical best, so it would seem, out of Branford when looking at the works Marsalis has done with and without him. Paul Motian's "Trieste" is interpreted nicely, and the rest of the recordings are Marsalis originals. "Cassandra" is a sentimental ballad with Branford attaining almost flute-like sounds on sax, and Kirkland soloing at about the 2-minute mark. This is the sort of outfit Marsalis excels in, and it's too bad Kenny isn't around to contribute to the Branford Marsalis legacy further.

Personnel:

Branford Marsalis (saxophones)

Kenny Kirkland (piano)

Jeff "Tain" Watts (drums)

Eric Revis (bass)
