Wynton Marsalis' First Recordings
Recorded live at Bubba's Jazz Resturant, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 11th October 1980.
Had a little look around on the worldwideweb, to see if this had been posted and it seems to have been missed. Fairly "safe" session from this top line-up, with Wheel within a Wheel being the stand out track. It's here that Art Blakey shines. Mind you, everybody throws in a great performance and Wynton shows off his highly technical skills.
