Wynton plays with his new quartet

On June 3 and 4, Wynton led a quartet at the Iron Horse for four packed shows Tuesday and Wednesday nights.
He brought along pianist Eric Lewis, drummer Ali Jackson Jr., and bassist Carlo Henriquez, and the quartet performed a seven-tune set, followed by a single song encore.
Most of the compositions played at the first Tuesday show were so new that Wynton hadn’t named them yet, and they included a sprightly New Orleans shuffle, a playful swing largely built around a one-note melody, and even one speedy “out”.
