Trumpet Inspiration 11

There are so many amazing videos of Wynton Marsalis, so it’s hard to choose just one! He is one of the few musicians who achieved world-class status as both a classical and jazz performer. He currently leads the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in New York City, an ensemble that includes several other outstanding trumpet players. He grew up in New Orleans in a very musical family — his father and brothers are also world-class musicians.

Here are two short videos that show his ability to perform jazz and classical music at the highest level. In the first video, he performs the jazz standard “Cherokee” with a harmon mute. The second video is the 3rd movement of the Haydn Trumpet Concerto, performed on an Eb trumpet.

There are many other jazz and classical videos on YouTube featuring Wynton Marsalis. Feel free to browse on your own and look up others!
