He and She is an album by Wynton Marsalis, released in 2009. The album reached a peak position of number 6 on Billboard's Top Jazz Albums chart.[1]


A Down Beat reviewer commented that, "Using the vernacular of Langston Hughes, but writing in a formal, Olympian style inspired by Irish national poet William Butler Yeats, Marsalis alternates between words and music, reciting a stanza then dramatizing its theme with his quintet. At the end, he strings all the stanzas together, declaiming his long poem about the trials of love in a satisfying finale."[2]
