Wynton Marsalis

1961 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Trumpet

Genres: Classical Music, Jazz

Renowned trumpet player, composer and arranger Wynton Marsalis hails from a well known musical family from New Orleans. Among the generation of artists who came of age in the 80s, Wynton Marsalis is considered the major musical discovery. He wasted little time distinguishing himself in both jazz and classical music. His clean-cut image - Marsalis is always dressed to the nines - is an extension of his musical philosophy: an unending search perfection and superior quality, reflecting the highest standards in the business.
