Overview

Filling in the gaps of Hip-O's first survey of '80s and '90 young jazz lions, this 13-track offering showcases many players who came out of the Wynton Marsalis mold of neo-trad, hard bop, and swing. In fact, several artists featured here (Marcus Roberts, Marcus Printup, Russell Gunn) have played with Marsalis. Others, including Javon Jackson, Donald Harrison, and Antonio Hart, got their start where countless other jazz greats over time have cut their teeth: Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers. Associations aside, the mix here is full of top-notch soloing and some inventive arrangements, but it often falls victim to the kind of over-playing that plagues most young players, especially this particular crew of jazzers. Start with some classic hard bop discs from Blue Note's '60s catalog instead.
