Jazz Jam: Wynton Marsalis Small Groups
Wynton Marsalis is a man who wears many hats: trumpeter, composer, Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, and music director of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.
But it’s too often forgotten that he first came to fame with small bands: after getting started with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, he then made musical history with his own original groundbreaking quintet. Whether he’s leading bands of any size, Marsalis’ music is always breathtakingly innovative and swinging.
