    Posted on August 26th, 2009 in CD | 8

This album, From Billie Holiday to Edith Piaf – Live in Marciac, is perhaps best described as the fusion of two passions rather than simply a meeting of great talent. The result is a concert consisting of: A…   Keep reading »

It’s an ambitious effort, combining spoken word and music, and Wynton has given his quintet some formidable charts. The album is tempered with flashes of humor and plenty of swing. There’s ease and elegance and more than a little wisdom in these grooves. Discuss about the new…   Keep reading »
