Wynton MARSALIS – Thick in the South (Soul Gestures in Southern Blue, Vol.1) 1994

Jazz

“Thick In The South: Soul Gestures In Southern Blue, Vol. 1” is a great release for Wynton Marsalis who not only plays exceptional trumpet, but also writes great compositions. Having listened to, “Black Codes (From The Underground,” this is a very different approach for Wynton. It’s alot more laid-back then “Black Codes,” but this doesn’t make it any less enjoyable.
All of the musicians (as usual) are stellar. Wynton is joined by Joe Henderson (tenor saxophone), Marcus Roberts (piano), Bob Hurst (bass), and Elvin Jones, Jeff Watts (drums). Again, Wynton surrounds himself with two jazz legends like Henderson and Jones, but don’t let their star status outshine the other musicians who turn in an equally great performance.
“Thick In The South: Soul Gestures In Southern Blue, Vol. 1” was released in 1991 and is apart of a fantastic series, which like other reviewers have said, is overlooked and underrated.
If you’re a fan of bebop and post-bop, then you should really check out this series.
