With only a quartet and without his brother Branford, J Mood is Wynton Marsalis' finest small-group recording -- a chance to focus on his playing with little distraction. This also marked the first session in which Marsalis' stylistic voice truly emerged from his adoration of Miles Davis. The playing of drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts is a perfect match for Marsalis' emotional contours, which are particularly poignant when he plays with a mute. Wynton Marsalis - J Mood 1986-13-20
