Jericho is Marshall's first album since the completion of the Red River Trilogy in 1999, (Bluefields, Mockingbird Station, and Red River Crossing). Employing a similar instrumental style he perfected with the Trilogy, Marshall takes us on a journey through the subsequent years of his life using his music to reflect the joy and pain of that time.
"Jericho" can be defined as some sort of personal diary in a musical format corresponding to the years 2000, 2001 and 2002, the time when the artist composed and recorded the album, and a very difficult period in his life. The artist offers us his mastery at creating a work full of beauty and romanticism, with themes that in some occasions tend to be lively, while in other instances they have a clear melancholic air. A general trait of the album is the fact that the music happens to be very intense, full of emotions. "Jericho" is, no doubt, a work that cannot leave any listener unconcerned.
