It doesn't, Polly, and that's the whole point. Wynton Marsalis is a highly visible target for jazz musicians and critics who have a chip on their shoulders, but the truth is that his success isn't taking food from anyone's table. You couldn't say that jazz would be a lot better off without Wynton Marsalis, nor could you say that it is any better because of him.
