Wynton Marsalis plays the trumpet — he's not just a Grammy award winning trumpet player, but a Pulitzer award-winning trumpeter. Wynton has released his first small ensemble jazz cd in 5 years. It's called The Magic Hour. Reviewer Jim Fusilli finds delight in the record, with clever performances. He also finds some of the jazz Wynton plays sometimes backward looking.
