When, forty years ago, in 1980, Wynton Marsalis was touring alongside drummer Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, he was already a sensation. True to his forebears, the infamous Donald Byrd, Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard, this teenager from New-Orleans embodied the future of jazz trumpet in its most authentic and modern form. A year later, the audience at Jazz à Vienne got to know him along with three superb musicians who were former Miles Davis’ sidemen: Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. Since then, Wynton Marsalis has trodden the Roman Theatre boards time and time again and delighted those who share his sincere and deep-rooted passion for acoustic jazz, in all its shapes, sizes and lustre.
At almost 59, Wynton Marsalis is the most famous of the Marsalis brothers – along with his big brother and saxophonist Branford Marsalis – and one of the foremost figures of jazz music in the world,. Wynton is also active in his native country and specifically in New-York, the sacred city of Jazz or “Jazz Mecca”, where his fantastic research into the history of the genre and creative impulse at the Lincoln Centre have been a reference since the 1980s. It’s clear from seeing Wynton Marsalis lead his Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra, with a mix of established artists and young new talents, that jazz still has a very bright future.
