He And She
 
Before heading into the studio, the Wynton Marsalis Quintet traveled to theIron Horse in North Hampton, MA to perform the new material in front of a liveaudience. The quintet subsequently cut the tracks live over a two-day period.The minimally edited result became He andShe.

Marsalis ended his last Blue Note studio album, From the Plantation to the Penitentiary, with a stunning spokenword piece, though on He and She,Marsalis's voice is more prominent throughout, prefacing just about every trackwith his poetic words.

He And She
is due out March 24th on Blue Note Records.
