Wynton Marsalis
Blood on the Fields
1997

At 18, he played with Art Blakey. Now, at 36, Wynton Marsalis is the premier jazz musician of his generation, and "Blood on the Fields," which won him a Pulitzer Prize, is his finest achievement. Recorded with the musicians of the Lincoln Center, this three-disk set is a complex meditation on slavery that combines blues, chants, call-and-response, spiritual, and Caribbean rhythms.
