Wynton Marsalis

 

First of all, if he wasn’t one of the most incredible trumpeters in existence, he would make for a great stand-up comedian. I have witnessed his act at friends houses and back-stage – Bill Cosby has competition.

 

He amazed me backed in 1982 at Saratoga Springs playing with the all-star band that included Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Tony Williams, Bobbie McPherin, George Benson, etc. The young Cat showed up amongst the Real School players, and I have been a fan since – Hell of a show, thanks Gents.

 

Know what I am most proud of Mr. Marsalis is Jazz at Lincoln Center. It is a wonderful facility, and the various stages/musical enclaves within are outstanding. It is a must when in NYC – Heck, have a Coke at the Coke Bar. A beautiful testament to Jazz. Thanks, Wynton. – Chris Stewart
