For his debut on this label, Wynton Marsalis gets back to basics with a small combo. Taking a break from his large-ensemble works like Blood on the Fields and All Rise, the trumpeter leads a quartet consisting of bassist Carlos Henriquez, pianist Eric Lewis, and drummer Ali Jackson. Labelmates Bobby McFerrin (who recorded with the trumpeter on the early ’80s LP, The Young Lions) and Dianne Reeves join Marsalis on “Baby, I Love You” and “Feeling of Jazz.” “Big Fat Hen” is peppered by a New Orleans-meets-Brazil second-line samba, while “Skippin’” is a Monkish riff tune with stop time. The title track, dedicated to the time when kids go to sleep, includes a melodic nod to “The Flight of the Bumblebee,” a mid-tempo groove, a ballad and the Cuban clave. With the sterling production by younger brother Delfeayo, Wynton Marsalis starts off on a good foot.
