Apropos of the Romare Bearden exhibit, has anyone else heard Branford 
Marsalis' newest CD? It's called "Romare Bearden Revealed," a celebration of 
the exhibit.  It's VERY nice:  he sounds for all the world like Sidney 
Bechet.  Apparently Bearden wrote some music in addition to his painting.  I 
like a lot of Branford's modern stuff, but this one really surprised me -- 
I've never heard him sound mouldier.  More info at
