Classic Wynton

There are undoubtedly many jazz fans who've been curious about Wynton Marsalis' classical recordings. Recognizing Marsalis' canon would benefit from an introductory volume, Sony Classical compiled Classic Wynton, which includes a cross-section of his non-jazz recordings from 1984 to 1998. Fans won't be surprised by the artist's clear, pure tone on these pieces, composed by Purcell, Handel, J.S. Bach, Hovhaness, Rimsky-Korsakov, and J.B. Arban. (The last, "Variations on 'Le Carnaval de Venise'," is famous as one of teenage Wynton's favorite pieces from his practice book.) Unfortunately for novices, the liners neglect a list of his classical discography, and the 1998 date ensures that several of his famous 1999 performances won't be present. Still, dipping a toe in the water is quite easy with this volume.
