The pieces on this album are gorgeous - Marsalis' playing is so entrancing I could listen to it day and night ! Tracks such as 'Vocalise' by Rachmaninoff and Satie's 'Gymnopedie No. 3' are a revelation when played by Marsalis; the emotions are stirred and the spirits lifted. Highly recommended to everyone.
and first bought it on vinyl many years ago. I was familiar with Branford Marsalis through his association with Sting and thought what a brilliant and interesting musician he was. This cd has a fantastic selection of some of my favourite classical pieces and Marsalis does them tremendous justice. Beautiful , melodious, slow romantic pieces performed brilliantly.I just love this.
