Default Re: Wynton Marsalis

Matt,

I've been through all those discussions about Marsalis at JazzCorner, and before that at JazzCentralStation. So, I've been going at it for about 15 years now and I haven't had much to say about any of it for a long time now. Let it suffice to say that I'm generally in alignment with you on Marsalis and his place in the music, with the minor caveat that I believe he has at least turned some people onto jazz through his visibility and I consider that a good thing.

But here's the question I want to ask you: Where do you see the innovation coming from in the jazz world today?
