    While Marsalis had been paying dues for some time in Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and the Brooklyn Philharmonia, this was the release that put him on the map. It serves as the starting point from which he began his trek to jazz stardom and renown outside the world of jazz (Marsalis has also recorded several albums of classical music). Marsalis' virtuoso technical ability, and unwavering, passionate devotion to undiluted, non-commercialized jazz seemed to take its inspiration from every trumpet great from Louis Armstrong to Miles Davis to Don Cherry. Marsalis synthesized these influences and still managed to forge a sound of his own.
    For his debut, Marsalis proceeded from a hard-bop base (a la the classic early '60s sessions on the Blue Note and Prestige labels) for a hard-swinging, inspired and volatile (especially brother Branford on "RJ") session. He alternated between his own quartet/quintet and a band of impressive guests: Hancock, Carter and the late Tony Williams (all of whom, coincidentally, were in the Miles Davis Quintet of the 1964-67 period). Give this album a listen and prepare to be impressed, amazed and blown away.
