There are no programmatic pretensions "Big Train"no PC pronouncements about slavery "Blood on the Fields"no overt homages to EllingtonMonkor Morton -- just Marsalis sounding mostly happy, buoyant, and, in the musical portraits of his friends, even warm-hearted, hugely enjoying himself as a composer. The sunny atmosphere is quickly established in the first loosely swinging number, "Loose Duck," and though the music is often difficult, encompassing all 12 keys, the musicians seem to scale the hurdles without an audible care.
