Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis
Since his time with Art Blakey’s legendary "Jazz Messengers" at the turn of the 1980s, he has been in the headlines. The newspaper has been thrilled (and sometimes annoyed) by this brilliant trumpet player who is top of his class. A fertile composer, charismatic leader, and artistic director of the jazz department at the prestigious Lincoln Center, Wynton Marsalis today occupies a special place in the contemporary jazz landscape. A fabulous musician who, more than any other, has been able to legitimise jazz as a significant form of 20th-century American art.
A virtuoso composer who goes from the creation of a jazz opera to the recordings of the Brandenburg Concertos of Bach. Great pedagogue at the head of the Jazz Lincoln Center, Doctor Honoris Causa of the University Jean Moulin - Lyon 3 for his commitment to education by music. Knight of the Legion of Honour, Wynton Marsalis has already established himself as a historic figure in jazz for the past twenty years, in the light of a tremendous enthusiasm never denied: "Jazz, we play it, we teach it, we write it, we sing it, we present it, we film it, we produce it, we archive it, we record it, we broadcast it, we celebrate it, we love and we share it". All is said.
