Wynton Marsalis

Jazz and classical trumpeter and educator who was simply awarded the Pulitzer Reward for Music for “Bloodstream on the Areas,” his 1997 oratorio. This is the very first time a jazz documenting of its kind received the Pulitzer. He graduated having a 3.98 GPA from Benjamin Franklin SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL and became the youngest musician to get into Tanglewood’s Berkshire Music Center. He offered as maker and on-screen commentator for Ken Burns up’ “Jazz” documentary from 2001, that he elicited very much criticism and controversy. His dad was jazz musician Ellis Marsalis, Jr., and his brothers, Branford, a saxophonist, Delfeayo, a trombonist, Mboya, and Jason, a drummer, all achieved varying examples of recognition for his or her musical skills. He and Kilometers Davis continued a longstanding feud, with Davis kicking Marsalis from the stage throughout a overall performance after Marsalis attempted to unexpectedly sign up for the proceedings.
