Default Re: Wynton Marsalis

I like him, I believe he deserves the respect and acclaim that he gets, he is a fantastic sax player, one of the best I've ever seen.

He was an integral part of my education as a brass musician and I don't resent it.

I do however find him to be a bit easy listening most of the time, he composes some great journeys musically, he tells a story and tells it well, but I'd prefer to listen to some wild, chaotic, fun free jazz when I'm in a jazz mood, Wynton isn't fun in my kind of way of fun.
A disquiet mind at therapy with the music.
