American jazz musician Wynton Marsalis wants to perform in Cuba again
The American trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, winner of nine Grammy Awards and director of the Orchestra of Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, wants to offer concerts in Cuba, announced the official press of the island.
"Wynton is the reason why I'm here, he is all the time telling me about Cuba and its desire to return," said the director of Education of Lincoln Center, Todd Stoll, during his visit to the National School of Art in Havana two days ago. The American professor said "Wynton loves Cuban music and his concert in Cuba was one of the most important moments of his life. He really wants to play here," said the Cuban daily Granma.
Marsalis, renowned world-class jazz musician from the 80s, visited the island in 2010 with his group. The group gave four concerts in Havana accompanied by Cuban pianist Chucho Valdes. The trumpeter also gave a master class for teachers and students and toured art education centers in Havana.
