Biografia

Wynton Learson Marsalis (b. October 18, 1961) is an American trumpeter and composer. He is among the most prominent jazz musicians of the modern era and is also a well-known instrumentalist in classical music. He is also the Musical Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center. A compilation of his series of inspirational letters to a young jazz musical student, named Anthony, has been published as To a Young Jazz Musician.

Marsalis has made his reputation with a combination of skill in jazz performance and composition, a sophisticated yet earthy and hip personal style, an impressive knowledge of jazz and jazz history, and skill as a virtuoso classical trumpeter. As of 2006, he has made sixteen classical and more than thirty jazz recordings, has been awarded nine Grammys between the genres, and has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music, the first time it has been awarded for a jazz recording.

    The lack of voice in his phrasing is really quite eerie.

    He hates the very spirit of jazz and has spent his entire career trying to choke it. Marsalis has all the talent in the world but no guts, soul or desire to try anything new, which is sad. [2]

    Wynton's brand of jazz is a "museum piece" because he rejects the advancements made by the Free Jazz and Fusion guys of the 60s and 70s, not to mention the work done by the Avant-Garde since that time. Not to say that some of those advancements didn't end up being something of creative dead ends, but to reject the groundbreaking work of artists like Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, Derek Bailey, Sun Ra, Albert Ayler and of course John Coltrane -- as well as many others -- as "self indulgent bullshit" and to basically play only forms from the 20s through the early 60s is ridiculous, disrespectful and antithetical to good art's purpose of forging ahead and breaking new ground. Conservatism and contentedness and being completely beholden to old styles and ideas are deathblows to worthwhile art of any kind, and they're the qualities that best describe Marsalis, Stanley Crouch, etc. Marsalis has all the talent in the world but no guts, soul or desire to try anything new, which is sad.

    That's not to say fusion is bad, or Jazz isn't relevant, or anything like that. But in terms of peak popularity - 1920 to 1965 is pretty much spot on. Rock and roll took over from 1955-2000? I think Pop and Hip-hop/rap are most popular now. so sad.

    Jazz was a museum piece before Wynton. Fusion took it off the map - jazz hasn't been competitive for "most popular music genre" status since Kind Of Blue. People like Herbie Hancock, good as he is, haven't dictated popular culture or reflected the times in the same way that Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman or Louis Armstrong did.

    Raul's take on Wynton is factual and a sad commentary on Wynton. Wynton is a very narrow minded man. He is an accomplished and awesome player which makes is opinions all the more depressing.

    RaulLipschitz, your merely an opinion. I love Wynton's knowledge of history, the pride behind the art form. To me, no one has come off more passionate about Jazz.

    Well, if you'll look around you, you will notice that all of these young musicians who came up under Wynton's tutelage - or adhered to his so-called definition of jazz - have now rejected his ideas and have finally gotten out from under him. Nicholas Payton, Roy Hargrove, Christian Mcbride: they have all entered into the realm of electricity (which Wynton dismisses) as they are interested in becoming more culturally relevant than he is. Ah, I hate to say this, because i love straight-ahead jazz, but.....4/4 swing is not the rhythm of our time, nor culture....and he knows it! So, why the charade??? Whatever. Wynton is not the "savior of jazz" or the "keeper of the flame" that everyone says he is - No.....he's just some old guy cradling a burnt-out matchstick. ha. (sorry...i know this is all hyperbole, but maybe somewhere in there lies the point that i'm trying for..)

    Wynton Marsalis has been the worst thing to happen to the music in years. The great dictator of improvised retro-futurism. He's turned jazz into a living museum people, come on! But whatever.... it will all die soon enough, and then...when it does, Lincoln center will be it's tomb. And when wynton finally goes, they'll put him on display in the LC lobby (you know, like they did with Lenin in Red Square). Das Vidanya, Jazz. Thanks for the memories.

    How is Marsalis not innovative? Granted, he goes back to basics, but he takes the classics beyond that. Just look at the Vitoria Suite, what a way to merge two cultures musically! Not to mention what they did live in those concerts, drawing from several North and South American cultures to do something quite unique... That's definitely some serious innovation.

    It's interesting what SoulJazzsterInc has said that there are the innovators and the classicists who defend the tradition. He strongly defends the innovation and ironically it is what makes him a traditional guy simply because he defends an OLDER/original innovation (of Jazz) while rejecting a lot of newer ones. Also, I agree about his smug character. It's like he's the guy you don't want to argue with because it'll ruin your weekend completely. P.S. Great musician, nevertheless and love listening to him (play).

    "Couldn't Metallica be jazz? No. Metallica is rock. it is straight eighths." So is the main riff of The Four Horsemen jazz then? It's got a swing feel. What about latin jazz, and bossa nova? It's impossible to set an exact definition for any genre because there's always exceptions, you just know what it is when you hear it. Besides, genres are really just ways of describing certain sounds and musical movements, not something one should aspire to fit inside the confines of. The guy's a hell of a player and has done a lot for jazz but he is also really strict in what constitutes jazz, and that really limits one's creativity. Establishing borders isn't what causes music to progress.
