Blues for the New Millenium (1997), 7.5/10

Blind pianist Marcus Roberts, Wynton Marsalis' pianist since 1985, coined an original neo-traditionalist style based on the lessons of Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk on The Truth is Spoken Here (july 1988). He went even as far as to rediscover archaic jazz techniques such as stride piano on As Serenity Approaches (november 1991). However, he best expressed his tormented persona on the Ellingtonian suites of Blues for the New Millennium (may 1997).
