Monterey, California – Wynton Learson Marsalis (born October 18, 1961) is a trumpeter, composer, teacher, music educator, and Artistic Director of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City, United States. Peter has photographed the internationally acclaimed trumpeter/educator performing at the Monterey Jazz Festivals on several occasions – with each uplifting show delivered in classic Marsalis style.
Over the past three decades, Wynton Marsalis has promoted the appreciation of classical and jazz music often to young audiences. Marsalis has been awarded nine Grammys in both genres, and a jazz recording of his was the first of its kind to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music.
