Catching the vibe of Wynton Marsalis

Richard Todd recently spoke with jazz and trumpet legend Wynton Marsalis before his shows at the Gaillard Center on Friday & Saturday, April 23 & 24 with the Wynton Marsalis Septet.  Richard shared a story with Wynton about his son, who is also a trumpet player, that touched Wynton so much, he invited them backstage to meet him so he can “lay the vibe” on his son!  They also discuss music in the time of a pandemic after Wynton lost his father, Ellis, last year due to Covid.  Wynton Marsalis talks about being inspired during these difficult times, the state of jazz today, the importance of music in everyone’s life & even playing the theme to CBS Sunday Morning!  Check out this exclusive conversation!
