DEFINING MUSICIANSHIP IN THE 21ST CENTURY: The Strategic Partnership Between Jazz at Lincoln Center and NAfME

When it comes to understanding the full impact that Jazz music has had (and continues to have) on the world, there’s one man in particular who has made it his life’s work to ensure that this legacy never dies.

Wynton Marsalis is one of the most recognizable names in music today, and his work as a trumpeter and composer is legendary.  His 30+ year career has earned him countless GRAMMYS, awards, and accolades.

But it is his work as the managing and artistic director at Jazz at Lincoln Center (JALC) in New York that shows where the man’s passion really lies.
