Traditional jazz joy here in 14 selections drawn from themed concerts hosted by Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Hall in New York in September 2006. There's such nimble, pristine playing and a whole lot of sheer passion throughout this labour of love that shines a light again on such seminal early jazz. Wynton is with Wycliffe Gordon, Vincent Gardner, Victor Goines, Walter Blanding, “Papa” Don Vappie, Jonathan Baptiste, Carlos Henriquez and Ali Jackson. Highlights include Victor Goines' clarinet runs on Spencer Williams' 'Fireworks' and elsewhere. But this is quintessential Wynton paying tribute to another proud son of New Orleans in his own inimitable manner warmly received by the Lincoln Center faithful.
