The Marsalis Family

I'm not sure what it is but something about jazz makes sense in autumn. Maybe it's the clear, crisp cold that lifts music out of the air. I was rummaging through iTunes for something to listen to and came across this. Notwithstanding the fact that I've been thinking a lot about fathers and sons lately and the thought of a whole family playing together, creating such beautiful music, is very poignant to me right now, I think the CD is one of the best I've ever heard. The musicians jive really well with each other and the jazz itself is playful and sophisticated, suffused with such a sense of joy it's a pleasure to listen to. I particularly enjoyed "Syndrome"; it's been on constant repeat in my car for the past two weeks.
