    Posted on May 19th, 2005 in Profiles & Interviews | 1

    Wynton Marsalis didn’t mind losing sleep for some high school band members. While on tour in a town “somewhere in Washington state” a few months ago, “I was doing a gig and it was midnight,” Marsalis told The Associated Press. “This girl, about 14, came to see me and I said, ‘What are you doing out so late?’”   Keep reading »

  • Old Friends Get Together, Feeling Right at Home

    Posted on March 12th, 2005 in Review | 1

    When Wynton Marsalis performs with his septet in New York these days, it is a special occasion.

So the septet faded into the background. But it’s good to be reminded of what it achieved. On Wednesday, at Rose Theater, the band entered from stage left, the musicians chanting in a slow single-file entrance, moving and stomping their feet in parade rhythm. As soon as they took their positions and dug into the tune—it was Mr. Marsalis’s “Ain’ No”—they flooded the acoustical space in the room.   Keep reading »
