Happy Birthday, Wynton

Posted by Mr. Leslie Wong On October - 18 - 2007

Trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis turned 46 today. I have a faint recollection of complimenting him on his set outside Sweet Basil, (or was it Joanna’s) in the early 80’s. That’s a lot of water under the bridge.

From The Plantation To The Penitentiary

Currently, my favorite work of his is Doin’ (Y)Our Thing, on his album, From The Plantation To The Penitentiary.
