Wynton Marsalis - Swinging into the 21st

From Joyride Media | 59:00

Wynton Marsalis looks back on music from throughout his career, from the straight jazz to his more classical compositions.

Marsalis21_small Jazz is dead! Well, it's not true -- but in the history of the music, that statement is heard very often. Wynton Marsalis has found that the best way to combat that idea is simple - keep creating. Like any art form, jazz lives as an ongoing interaction between the artist, audience and larger culture. In this hour, Wynton reflects on his life and music in the 20th century and its continuation into the 21st. GREAT PROGRAMMING AROUND WYNTON MARSALIS' 50TH BIRTHDAY - 10/18/2011
