I'm pushing the Violent Success genre envelope today because I grew up on jazz. More specifically, I joined the school jazz band in 7th grade and thought I'd found heaven. The trombone, you see, is a versatile instrument, but it is vastly under appreciated in the concert band atmosphere. In other words, I wasn't getting the respect I deserved, dammit. But in jazz band, the trombones reigned supreme - especially if the trumpets weren't paying attention. But I was also kind of a weird kid. I played trombone, to start with. It sounds cool now, but it wasn't [...]
EgoTrip has posted a series of 10 Favorite Sample Flips from world-famous hip-hop djs and producers. The commentary is great: J. Rocc: One of them ones where you hear the [sample source] and you’re like, “Wow, how’d [Pal Joey] hear that? What are you doing listening to this record?” That’s the question you ask. “Why are you listening to this .99 cent record, right here? Wynton Marsalis?” And then like he found an all-time classic loop. You can’t front. That’s a hip-hop and a house classic. You can play [...]

Detroit Free Press (MCT) -- DETROIT - Anyone concerned that a recent leadership change at the top of the Detroit Jazz Festival might mean a lowering of artistic ambitions or an increase in commercial crossover styles can breathe a sigh of relief. The 2012 lineup assembled by new artistic director Chris Collins reaffirms the festival's core commitment to the jazz tradition and opens a window on the personal vision that Collins, the first professional jazz musician to lead the Detroit...
In 1999 Wynton Marsalis ushered us into the 21st century with an incredible effort, proving yet again why he is already a legend. I'll admit it. When I ripped open a padded envelope last week and found a copy of Wynton Marsalis' new box set Swinging into the 21st my heart sank. What could be said about Wynton Marsalis that hasn't already been said? Then I started doing some research and realized that, my god, there is a lot about Wynton Marsalis that I don't know. But not to bore you with my lack of knowledge (that's a...
What's sure to be one of the more interesting pairings of 2012 is getting together for three performances at Rose Theater in New York City, when Paul Simon teams up with Wynton Marsalis and Aaron Neville for concerts billed as "The Paul Simon Songbook" on April 18, 19 and 20. [Photo via Jazz at Lincoln Center] The trio will perform new orchestrations of Simon's classic material backed by both the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and members of Paul's band. Ever since Marsalis took over as [...]
UPDATE: Thought we'd re-post some of our more popular Christmas efforts; this one gets requests every year. This was one of the coolest albums of Christmas music ever. Originally released in 1962, this unassuming little compilation featured an all-star cast of jazz luminaries like Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Duke Ellington and others. It was reissued on vinyl in 1980 (cover pictured above) but now it has disappeared into the mists of time. Don't bother looking for it on CD - [...]
Editorial Reviews from Amazon 2011 live collaboration between guitar legend Eric Clapton and Jazz great Wynton Marsalis.. The duo performed together in Rose Theater at Frederick P. Rose Hall, home of Jazz at Lincoln Center for two sold-out shows dedicated to vintage Blues. The extraordinary collaboration, billed as Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play the Blues, paired these musical virtuosos with members of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as they brought to [...]
Akron Beacon Journal (MCT) -- AKRON, Ohio - He is the most famous jazz artist alive. At 49, trumpeter/composer/bandleader Wynton Marsalis (he'll turn 50 in October), is generally considered past the age of obsolescence in the pop realm but still in his prime in the jazz world. Nevertheless, his status as one of the most hailed jazz artists, position as leader of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and gatekeeper of the jazz "tradition" has placed him as jazz's elder...

Before I get to the part of the article where I piss off the Ken Burns jazz fans, let me rant a little about something completely (well, almost) unrelated. So I'm minding my own business the other day when I see this tweet (Hmmm ... if somebody reads this twenty years from now, will the word "tweet" still make sense?)
