I have a contact number for Wynton’s office, however I know that he doesn’t want it given out.  If you would like to email me sometime, put Wynton in the subject block and I will get back to you, or you can call me in AZ at 520 234 4449.  I know that meeting Wynton and talking to him is a great honor, but he is really busy.

Wynton does not have a direct email address.  He keeps in contact with his office each day because he is on the road so often.

I am an assistant principal at a middle school and would like to know if he visits schools at all.  We would be willing to pay if necessary but I don’t know how to contact him or his office.  He’s probably out of our league but it’s worth a try.

I saw your email response. Recently I was in New York trying to contact Mr. Marsalis. There is a builng here in Portland OR that I am trying to save. Please check out my website. http://www.multiwayz.com an www.jumpspace.org. This is ‘the house that Bebop built’ and there is a deadline , of course. It is important to contact Mr Marsalis by Friday the 16th! There is historical site here in Portland, Oregon that everyone should know about and want to be a part of. Louis Armstrong, Theolonius , the Duke, were all here. This was a hoppin’ place. With all that’s going down these days- I want to ‘jump’ into action. Creating a venue that can give us hope. That is what I’d like to share with Mr Marsalis. Thank you,JaimeLee

Jaime Lee,

There are many major organizations that offer grants for the type of preservation work you describe. Depending on the focus of your project (primarily preservation, educational, archiving, etc.) you may be able to secure funding from a place like the National Endowment for the Humanities. If you have not done so already, you can do a search for such institutions. Look into what’s available. As far as I know, Jazz at Lincoln Center is a profit making organization and as such might not be the best place to go if you are seeking a monetary donation/contribution to your cause.

 

Your idea sounds good…be committed and keep on.

Actually, JALC is a NON-profit Arts organization under the IRS 501-3C charitable organizations code….Wynton could be interested in this, however, as I have asked him repeatedly to be involved in different projects, his reply many times is “what can I do”?....many times he’s right…his name brings a certain amount of press but in the long run….you need a politician..maybe one that has a passion for jazz and history…good luck.

We would like to contact Mr. Marsalis to tell him about a fellow musician in Louisiana who will finally be honored by his own hometown. ....Percy Mayfield, the “Poet Laureate of the Blues” was never honored nor recognized in his hometown of Minden, Louisiana. 

On May 13 & 14, Cultural Crossroads will sponsor their Spring Arts Festival and pay tribute to the musician and songwriter that called Minden home.

The festival site it just blocks from Percy’s original sound studio.

We would love to contact Mr. Marsalis. Perhaps he could help us do right by the man who wrote “Hit the Road Jack,” along with many others including “Stranger in my own hometown.” .....Percy will be a stranger no more.

Please contact us for more info about Percy at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or write to Cultural Crossroads, P.O. Box 1393, Minden, La. 71058

I stand corrected. J@LC is non profit? Well, to Jaime…grants might be a really attractive option. I am so UNclear about how a non profit works bc they still have to make money, right?

And of course, I have a book on that…should go read. So many books, so little time…

I have just seen Wynton Marsalis’ quartet in concert in Indpls, In. April 16, 2005. WOW!!!!

As a music educator myself, I am really impressed with the quality of his playing and of the other musicians in the group. Wow!!! I sat front row center and was blown away by the talent of this wonderful man.

 

He needs to do more school concerts. The money is there so if I have a list of his concert dates and venues, I could contact his agent or manager and get something lined up for a future date in my school area, what a fun time the kids would have???????
