Wynton Marsalis is the acclaimed trumpeter, composer, bandleader, educator and director at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York. His oratorio Blood On The Fields led him to be the first jazz musician to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music, a prize that was once reserved for classical composers. Marsalis himself comes from the illustrious Marsalis jazz family whose patriarch, Ellis Marsalis, died this April 1st from Covid-related illnesses.
