Wynton Marsalis is an internationally acclaimed jazz and classical musician as well as a leading advocate of American culture.
From the biography on his website, www.wyntonmarsalis.org, “Marsalis’ core beliefs and foundation for living are based on the principals of jazz. He promotes individual creativity (improvisation), collective cooperation (swing), gratitude and good manners (sophistication), and faces adversity with persistent optimism (the blues). With his evolved humanity and through his selfless work, Marsalis has elevated the quality of human engagement for individuals, social networks and cultural institutions throughout the world.”
