Hmmmmm......one thing I'm absolutely sure of.......From a historical and musical platform....I've learned so much more about this great music from Wynton Marsalis than from anyone of his critics. In fact I haven't seen anything from ANY of his critics that teaches me something about jazz from their perspective that I didn't get from him already. I learn something about life and this great music every single time I read an interview with him or listen to his music. 
   
  I hear this about him and that from folk that don't care for him but nothing from that perspective that gives me something that makes me better as a jazz musician, broadcaster, educator or even a better jazz appreciator. It's always easier to take jabs at someone or to say so and so is arrogant or dis his recordings or he thinks he's all that or I'm tired of hearing or reading about him - without bringing something to the table that's worth a shit from their own view point isn't it?

I gave James Hale's review no stars. I'll leave it at that.
