Wynton Marsalis is an acclaimed musician, composer, bandleader, educator, and advocate for the arts who has helped propel jazz to the forefront of American culture. He is the world’s first jazz artist to perform and compose across the full jazz spectrum from its New Orleans roots to bebop to modern jazz. In 1997, he became the first jazz artist to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music for Blood on the Fields, which was commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center. Marsalis has won nine Grammy awards. In 1983, and again in 1984, he won Grammy awards for jazz and classical records, the first artist to do so. In addition to his performance duties with Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Marsalis also serves as the managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
