Wynton Marsalis Releases He and She

The new album from Pulitzer Prize winner Wynton Marsalis is out today (3.24.09) on Blue Note. Marsalis' fifth Blue Note release is centered around that eternally compelling and most elemental of subjects, the relationship between a man and a woman. Features 22 tracks of Wynton's signature jazz style as well as spoken word / poetry. It's an ambitious effort, combining spoken word and music, and Marsalis has given his quintet some formidable charts. The album is tempered with flashes of humor and plenty of swing. There's ease and elegance and more than a little wisdom in these grooves.

He and She is available on CD & digitally 3.24.09 on Blue Note.
