Marciac 2008 Video: The Septet plays Spiritual Awakening and Superb Starling
The Marciac 2008 video series continues with three new video clips filmed on August 6-7, 2008. The following clips will show you the Wynton Marsalis Septet rehearsing a Marcus Roberts’ song entitled: Spiritual Awakening (from the album: Deep in the Shed) and Superb Starling (from Wynton’s album Levee Low Moan). Moreover, we show you a different take for the song: The Majesty of the Blues. Enjoy…
Septet personnel for these video clips was: Wynton Marsalis (trumpet); Wycliffe Gordon (trombone); Victor Goines (tenor sax, bass clarinet); Wes “Warm Daddy” Anderson (alto sax); Marcus Roberts (piano); Reginald Veal (bass); Herlin Riley (drums).q
This is why I love jazz. This Majesty of the Blues sounds almost like a gospel influenced version and J-Master is so fun to listen to; you never know how he’s going to impress you, but he does it everytime. When I mentioned the “infectious groove” in the take 1 clip, it’s even more evident in take 2. The rhythm section seems as if they just don’t want to let that groove go; it could go on forever.
