Many good reviews on Amazon already. Just a little detail:
Skain's Domain around the 3:55 mark is the source of Marcus Roberts' piano sampled by Pal Joey for Soho's Hot Music.

5.0 out of 5 stars More fantastic jazz... 11 Jan. 2008
By finulanu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wynton ventures deeper into blues and hard bop here than he ever had before, and he's adept at both genres. The title track starts things off and, while it does trail off before it ends, sets into a solid bluesy groove and showcases some of Marcus Roberts' finest piano playing. He also performs one of his most successful Miles Davis tributes, "Presence That Lament Brings", with a sensitive reading of the melody from a muted trumpet. Then the wild retrobopper "Insane Asylum" comes along and throws off the mood, but that's such a good tribute to the subgenre most people associate with jazz that I don't care. Tain is especially great on that tune; the bop fun continues on "Skain's Domain". The other ballad, "After", is my favorite song on this album. It sounds a ton like Miles Davis, but it's really, really, really amazing Miles Davis. Like, you know, one of his classic pensive ballads. I would be happy if Wynton made a whole album of nothing but songs like "After". A couple songs, like the bebopping "Melodique" and the mid-tempo "Much Later", are slight, but enjoyable while they're playing - if only Brandford had played on this album (he was recording with Sting at the time), it would be the best album of Marsalis' career. Because yes, the lack of a second horn player does kind of hurt, especially given how good the chemistry between the Marsalis brothers is - which is only to be expected, of course. But anyway, Marsalis fans owe it to themselves to get this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars J Mood by Wynton Marsalis, my review from Barcelona 16 Sept. 2007
By Bluesman From Barcelona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
How the JAZZ likes me and Wynton Marsalis is one of which more. This `J MOOD' record was recorded when Brandford Marsalis and Kenny Kirkland chose to leave Wynton Marsalis' group to make money with Sting.
So, Wynton had to regroup fast for this recording with bassist Robert Hurst III and drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts who has been developing what is now the most inventive style of all younger drummers at the time. Also the trumpeter met up with the blinded pianist Marcus Roberts for the first time getting all of them a wonderful record. Wynton was still very much under Miles Davis's influence at the time and in this record is very noticeable as in the marvellous "Much Later" by instead, but at age 24 he already had rather remarkable technique to be a future number one as he is. He performs whit consistently creative fashion on these seven unpredictable tracks and I would highlight the relaxed "J Mood", "Insane Asylum", the great quality of "Skain's Domain" and the beautiful "Presence That Lament Brings". Highly recommended and I give it 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tain! 31 Dec. 2005
By Gentle Giant - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, I never saw Tain with Wynton, but I have seen him with Branford many times, and I always love it. But somehow, I think my favorite Tain on record is here, especially the title track. The Branford records are good too, but this has a "rawer" feeling to me somehow...it is too bad Wynton went Dixieland shortly after this.

(There is the great "Blues Alley" album with this band, too.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring the jazz club home... 27 May 2013
By w - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've had this album for years. I go back to this recording all the time because it really embodies that intimate jazz setting. The songs are subtle to boisterous, moody, contemplative, raw and refined. There is a darkness to the music, especially with Jeff "Tain" Watts on the drums that is beautiful and compliments the overall feel of the entire record. As a drummer who plays some jazz I've 'modeled' my jazz kit sound to some degree based on this cd alone. Just more amazing stuff from the prodigy Wynton Marsalis.
