They played selections from “The Magic Hour” and from the latest album: “From the Plantation to the Penitentiary”. The concert was beautiful and a lot of people attended the performance in the lovely Parc Floral, in the middle of the Bois de Vincennes. We also shot some video clips for you, and we’ll publish them soon in the podcast section. This morning we are leaving for Marciac where Wynton is going to play concerts with the Quintet,…   Keep reading »

  • Looking Home to The Crescent City

    Posted on April 12th, 2007 in Review | 1

    Wynton Marsalis is rarely predictable. When it was announced that his concert on Tuesday would feature the same edition of the Marsalis Sextet that’s on his new album, “From the Plantation to the Penitentiary,” as well as the singer Jennifer Sanon, who is extensively featured on the album, it was a logical conclusion that Mr. Marsalis would be performing music from the new release.   Keep reading »

  • Wynton Marsalis Checks In on The Land That Never Has Been Yet

    Posted on April 8th, 2007 in Review | 0

    I’ve been listening to Wynton Marsalis’ new disc From the Plantation to the Penitentiary a lot.  It’s got the music—a neat jazz combo running through a variety of styles.  It’s just enough bop and bebop so it doesn’t put one to sleep like a Kenny G. solo, but it’s not an avalanche of sound like those from Coltrane’s thundering Ascension either.  Then there’s the vocals.  Yes, the vocals.  Mr. Marsalis is putting some lyrics to his tunes on this one, and he’s got plenty to say.   Keep reading »

  • Wynton Marsalis: Wynton Throws Down the Gauntlet

    Posted on March 19th, 2007 in Profiles & Interviews | 1

    Like Howard Beale in Network, Wynton Marsalis is mad as hell and he’s not gonna take it anymore. Of course, the 45-year-old trumpeter-bandleader and celebrated jazz ambassador has always been riled and outraged, ever since he was an audacious, outspoken kid back in New Orleans. And over the course of the past 20 years, he has always spoken his mind in interviews or in casual conversation. Like his equally unguarded brother Branford, you know where Wynton stands. He pulls no punches, never attempts to obfuscate. Like him or not, he’s painfully direct, unwavering in his convictions.   Keep reading »
