Music: Wynton Marsalis BOLDEN / Ike Quebec COMPLETE BLUE NOTE 45 SESSIONS
Wynton Marsalis BOLDEN
Old school NOLA ragtime from the great Wynton Marsalis. And man… is this music ever well done: authentic, virtuoustic, and just stellar! The feel of the record is like… a Ragtime COTTON CLUB. Super cool! I enjoyed this a lot.
Ike Quebec COMPLETE BLUE NOTE 45 SESSIONS
One of the unsung greats, this 2 disc, 26 track collection is a perfect entry point for anyone interested in learning more. Soulful, evocatively-played standard and classics and ALL are handled with aplomb. Why doesn’t Quebec get more love from jazz fans? I mean, he’s SO great! Get this… this is a record that will change your life.
