While each musician was talented, there were too many solo's during each piece. As well, it seemed like the trio was extremely restrained, and perhaps that is their style. I was expecting a rousing, blues-gospel-oriented jazz performance, but it was almost more like the sounds you'd hear at Nordstrom's. Pretty-sounding, but very lightweight and without soul. The description of it was more stirring than the performance itself.
Rhythmic and powerful, Marcus Roberts Trio explores the blues and gospel traditions that are part of the essence of jazz. What a Wonderful World features selections from Jelly Roll Morton and arrangements of songs popularized by the greatest jazz improviser of all time, Louis Armstrong, as well as the queen of gospel music, Mahalia Jackson.
