Wynton Marsalis: Swinging Into The 21st!
Jazz is dead! Well, it's not true — but in the history of the music, that statement is heard very often. Wynton Marsalis has found that the best way to combat that idea is simple — keep creating.
Like any art form, jazz lives as an ongoing interaction between the artist, audience and larger culture. In this hour, Wynton reflects on his life and music in the 20th century, and its continuation into the 21st.
Air date for this show: Sunday, 4/1/2012. You can hear The Listening Room Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m., on WWNO, 89.9 FM.
