  1. I think Wynton has done a great service to all manknd for not only playing for us but for having taken us through a learning process to understand and appreciate jazz music and life! I’ve read the first chapter of “Moving to Higher Ground” and , believe me,I’ve learned so much about life through these pages than one could imagine.
    Identify who you are,accept you need to learn and improve yourself ,map out how to ,and remain focussed. His message is inspiring as well as satisfying.
