What John Zorn has meant to the New York underground for five decades, Wynton Marsalis has meant at least as long to the, well, New York “upper ground”. In particular that of the Upper West Side, where since 1987 the trumpet player has led the renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center and the big band of the same name – the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. In all those years, that has brought him as many friends as enemies – Marsalis is more an Empire State Building in the jazz world than a tall tree. But if one person can be said to be the treasurer of nearly a century of jazz, it is Wynton Marsalis. The trumpet player from new Orleans – literally nothing in his biography does not breathe jazz – was the first jazz composer to receive a prestigious Pulitzer Prize, and with his leading big band he continues to celebrate the works of the Great Jazz Masters. Not sure whether the enthusiasm is still as sky high as it was 30 years ago? You will hear the proof this summer at Gent Jazz.
