What a tremendous GIFT will Masterpiece of GOLD will make any true fan!! Wynton Marsalis's 1982 debut was recorded before the trumpeter had reached his 20th birthday and when he was still a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. In many ways, it was a pivotal event for Jazz in the eighties. As Marsalis became the central figure in a return to the acoustic style of the late fifties and sixties and the model for all young lions to come. While there are elements of Miles Davis in Marsalis' style, the strongest parallels are with Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard. The pyrotechnic trumpeters who arrived at about the same age in the late fifties and who first made their talents known in Blakey's group. Even with a Harmon mute on Ron Carter's JR, Marsalis suggests Hubbard's precise articulation. Saxophonist Branford Marsalis recalls Wayne Shorter's prefusion style and Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams featured on four tracks pick up where they had left off with Miles Davis and on numerous Blue Note dates. The music is taut, thoughtful, and filled with youth bravado but more fascinating still is how a leading edge style of the sixties succumbed to fusion in the seventies only to return as a full blown conservative movement in the next decade. Selections include Father Time - I'll Be There When The Time Is Right - RJ - Hesitation - Sister Cheryl - Who Can I Turn To - Twilight.
