    Posted on February 7th, 2010 in Articles | 66

    Down on the Bayou where the mighty Mississippi kisses Lake Pontchartrain and spills into the Gulf of Mexico. There sits that jewel of the Southland. What the French lost to the British who gave it to the Spanish who lost it back to the French who sold it to America for….. Well, some folks say Jefferson conned Napoleon in a card game and won it for some jambalaya and a chicory coffee. New Orleans, N’Awlins, the Crescent City, the Big Easy, the northern capitol of the Caribbean, Groove City. Man, they have things down there you wouldn’t believe.…   Keep reading »

  • Wynton Marsalis Featured In Vogue Magazine

    Posted on December 9th, 2009 in Articles | 3

    Wynton Marsalis loves the sound of New York City. For the 48-year-old jazzman, there’s a thrilling harmony in the jangle of the streets. “If you listen beneath the surface of noise—the construction, the sound of the traffic, beneath the rumble of the subway—you can get down to the different interactions between people,” he says. If anyone can hear such nuance, surely Marsalis can. Born in sound-rich New Orleans, he came to New York as a seventeen-year-old prodigy to study at the Juilliard School and promptly started gigging with Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.

  • Wynton’s exclusive op-ed article for DownBeat Magazine on newsstands now

    Posted on September 22nd, 2009 in Articles | 0

    Check out an excerpt from Wynton’s “Jazz Is Life Music” : “In the past thirty years, I have had the good fortune to teach thousands of bands and an incalculable number of students in diverse settings.

Every style of music presents distinct challenges which demand the development of different skills. Jazz requires creativity, communication and community. Through improvising we learn to value our own creativity; through swing we coordinate our communication with others; and…   Keep reading »

    On inauguration day in Washington earlier this year, the Wynton Marsalis Quintet played a private party at the White House in honour of President Obama. The two men are the same age, but long before Obama came to prominence, Marsalis had been a national figure and so while he says “as a liberal and a Democrat I, of course, feel that things are better in America”, he is experienced enough to know that change, particularly in the areas he cares about most, might not come as quickly as he would like. As well as being the best known figure in…   Keep reading »
