I was amazed when I saw him, too. He has one called something like "Thick in the South". I have a copy and like it quite a lot. I'm not sure on the title, though.

Ive seen Wynton and Branford live several times (together and separate), and agree that they are amazing. Of the many Marsalis family CDs in my collection, my favorites of Wynton are:
* Standard Time Vol. 3 (The Resolution Of Romance), in fact the entire Standard Time series is great, but I think this is his best work, period. Good for relaxing.
* Standard Time Vol. 6 (Mr. Jelly Lord). A tribute to Jelly Roll Morton of course. Awesome sonics (big soundstage with brassy blats from everywhere). Great Dixieland fun.
* Joe Cools Blues. Alternating between Wyntons Septet and his fathers (Ellis) trio, they have a go at Vince Guaraldis music from Peanuts fame. Ellis sticks close to the original tunes, while Wynton offers some new interpretations.
* Think of One. An early recording, might be hard to find. The title track is fantastic. In fact this song, on vinyl, started me on the road toward a rather large jazz collection.
I saw Wynton play here in Lafayette, LA last week and he put on a fantasic show. I have most of the output form Mingus, Coltrane, Monk, Miles and most of the Blue Note catalog. Wynton was one who I have never explored. Audiotomb, where are good places in the NO area to puchase audio gear? No where in Lafayette to shop for audio gear.
