Wynton Marsalis – Standard Time Vol.2 “Intimacy Calling” {Columbia}


Review by Scott Yanow ~allmusic.com
Wynton Marsalis’s second of three standard albums was actually released after the third volume. On most of the selections, the brilliant trumpeter is heard in excellent form with his quartet (comprised of pianist Marcus Roberts, bassist Reginald Veal or Robert Hurst and either Herlin Riley or Jeff Watts on drums); tenorman Todd Williams helps out on “I’ll Remember April” and altoist Wes Anderson is also added to “Crepuscule with Nellie.” Marsalis’s tone really makes the ballads worth hearing, and his unusual choice and placement of notes keeps the music stimulating. This mostly bop-oriented set is rounded off by a jaunty version of “Bourbon Street Parade.”

01. When it’s Sleepytime Down South (5:11)
