The Ambassador of Jazz returns to the Paramount backed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Wynton is described as the most outstanding jazz musician and trumpeter of his generation, a brilliant composer, a devoted advocate for the arts and a tireless and inspiring educator.

A fixture on the American cultural scene, Wynton Marsalis has brought jazz back to center stage in the U.S.A. through his relentless work ethic and drive. He is also a distinguished classical performer whose many recordings for Sony Classical have been an important aspect of his career since it began. In 1997, he became the first jazz musician to win the Pulitzer Prize in music for his epic oratorio on the subject of slavery, Blood on the Fields.

Marsalis' numerous jazz and classical recordings for Columbia and Sony Classical have sold nearly five million copies worldwide. He has taken his jazz groups to thirty countries on six continents, averaging more than 120 concerts per year for many of the past sixteen years.

Marsalis serves as artistic director for the internationally recognised Jazz at Lincoln Center program, which he co-founded in 1987. He is the winner of eight Grammy awards for his jazz and classical recordings.
