All Rise could be a musical or theatrical piece in the traditions of Porgy & Bess. It sits comfortably with two of Wynton’s straight-ahead jazz albums, “In this house, On this morning” and “Blood on the Fields”. There are elements of improvisation, links to gospel as well as more obvious classical pieces.
Marsalis is not pushing the boundaries of jazz, which is a music that should always be “in progress” or live, the very thought of capturing it on a CD is against it’s whole reason. However he plays well in a traditional way, within the parameters he sets and seems suited to the jazz/classical crossover.
This is a “classical” album with beat and energy; a lot more beat and energy for me than John Surman “Free and Equal”, which was released around the same time. The blurring of classical and jazz in this way makes this an enjoyable album.

Marsalis is not renown for pushing the boundaries of jazz but he is an exceedingly accomplished player, in a traditional way, within the parameters he sets for himself. His playing seems well suited to this type of jazz/classical crossover.
