Wynton Learson Marsalis is a trumpeter, composer, teacher, music educator, and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, United States. Marsalis has promoted the appreciation of classical and jazz music often to young audiences. Marsalis has been awarded nine Grammys in both genres, and his Blood on the Fields was the first jazz composition to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Marsalis is the son of jazz musician Ellis Marsalis, Jr., grandson of Ellis Marsalis, Sr., and brother of Branford, Delfeayo, and Jason. Marsalis performed the national anthem at Super Bowl XX in 1986.
For mountain climbers, the Himalayas; for classical trumpet players, the Haydn, Hummel, and L. Mozart trumpet concertos. The young Marsalis tackles the climb with virtuosic technique and clarion tone. Wynton’s 1983 Grammys for this recording and THINK OF ONE…made him the first and only artist to win classical and jazz Grammy Awards in the same year. This recording also marks the beginning of Wynton’s collaborations with the distinguished conductor Raymond Leppard, here leading the National Philharmonic Orchestra.
