Where it all began
Wynton Marsalis owes a lot of his musical prowess to his roots. His parents are a part of the first generation of the New Orleans music scene which has contributed greatly to the African-American identity of the late 1900’s. Marsalis grew up in a city completely engulfed with jazz, blue-grass and musicianship and he quickly showed musical prowess himself. So, he began playing with a number of like-minded musicians in and around New Orleans. He went to Julliard in New York for college, a prestigious performing arts school which has produced some of the finest musicians in the world. There, he dabbled in classical music as well and, after graduating, instantly gained a recording contract.
Career as a Classical Musician
Wynton Marsalis is passionate about classical music by the greats such as Beethoven, Bach and Mozart. He has pursued and gained a successful career in classical music as a result of this passion. At age 20, he successfully recorded “Haydn, Hummel and Leopold Mozart trumpet concertos, which is an impressive addition to his detailed resume. It won a GRAMMY for “Best Classical Soloist with an Orchestra”. He then recorded ten more classical tracks which received critical acclaim.
The singer has performed with a number of leading orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic, Boston Pops, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra and The Cleveland Orchestra. Internationally, he has been a part of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, London’s Royal Orchestra and the English Chamber Orchestra. In these various ensembles, he has worked with some of the leading conductors in the world, including Tilson-Thomas, Dutoit Maazel, Slatkin, Leppard and Salonen. Out of his whole classical career, a highlight is his recording of the “Baroque Duet” with soprano Kathleen Battle. Maurice Andre, an esteemed trumpeter has said that Marsalis is “potentially the greatest trumpeter of all time.”
Marsalis has produced over eighty records so far which have sold over seven million copies worldwide and have resulted in three Gold Records. His recordings have an emphasis on blues as well as newer forms of jazz, despite Marsalis’ being trained in classical traditions. He is an innovator despite being an upholder of a great musical tradition. He has influences of New Orleans jazz and modern jazz as well; swing music as well as primary rhythms; elements of the pop song and improvised/experimentational music. You never really know what exactly to expect from Marsalis, but you can expect it to be nothing short of sensational.
Founding new spaces for jazz
Marsalis co-founded a music program at the Lincoln Center in 1987. Given to its continued excellence, in 1996, it was made a new constituent of the Lincoln Center and termed “JALC” (Jazz at the Lincoln Center). It is considered equivalent to some of the best musical companies in America, including the New York Philharmonic.
In 2004, Marsalis opened the Frederick P. Rose Hall with the help of his loyal staff. It is the first jazz institution in the world. It contains three performance spaces equipped with the best and latest musical comforts technology has to offer, and excellent recording, broadcasting and rehearsal spaces. It is a center for students, teachers and fans to come together and discover newer avenues in jazz. JALC is one of the most frequented acts by jazz fans and the Frederick P. Rose Hall as well.
