Jazz at Lincoln Center Presents: The Fire of the Fundamentals

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This CD, which actually features the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra on only two selections, has highlights from a variety of concerts held at Lincoln Center during 1991-1993.

Pianist/vocalist Jay McShann re-creates "Hootie Blues," pianist Marcus Roberts romps through Monk's "Bolivar Blues" and then "Dahomey Dance" offers particularly strong solos from a septet with Marsalis and tenorman Todd Williams. Betty Carter sings a spacy version of "You're Mine You," Marcus Roberts returns for a solo rendition of Morton's "The Crave," the Wynton Marsalis Sextet interprets Miles Davis' moody "Flamenco Sketches" and vocalist Milt Grayson finishes the CD anti-climactically with the ballad "Multi Colored Blue." It's an interesting if not essential set with plenty of variety and many worthwhile performances.
