  2. i like the line up especially Wycllife Gordon i hope he will have some solo piece in the recording. Wynton will you consider having Wallace Rooney in your next recording it will be interesting to hear you both play, i find him very much a dedicated scholar of Miles Davis.i would like to very much hear your influence as well as that of Miles, in Wallace’s character.

  5. I can’t wait to hear the music they are recording. It will be nice to hear Joe Temperley’s sound as part of a smaller group.

    I’m reading this post having just learned that Freddie Hubbard has passed away. I’m sure his influence will still be felt for many years to come.
