  1. Gloria

    From listening what I heard him do at Dizzy’s maybe some cuts were made rather than the tunes itself. I don’t know what the tune was but its not on the CD. I could be confused he writes so much. Let me listen to it again on Thursday. I wish I could go to his CD release party whenever it is but I am out of town.

    When one has a producer ad engineer like Delfyo Marsalis
    It is going to sound like gold.

    However, I am just trying to get$1,200.00 together for the duplication and packaging of my own mastered CD. I am doing one of Wynton’s tunes and I am so proud. So my attention is a little distracted right now. My birthday is the 23rd of March. Hopefully, I can find another backer to help me out?

  3. I am so proud that Wynton has really released this particular CD. It shows that even
    an musician in his forties can flow within the generations of times. Like many of us he is trying to relate to these self raised children and non caring individuals with power and greed. You have no choice but listen to a piece more than once. With the lyrics, the melody, and the arrangement, you must really listen because of its greatness!. Good listeners WILL listen to a presentation more than once if possible.

    He should really get a grammy for this one.

    I am puzzled that not all tunes were not on this cd that he wrote for the project.
