Trumpeter Wynton Marsalis (1961) is an authority in the jazz worldand so he is at the centre of many discussions; completely fittingfor someone with his standing at the top of his art. Marsalis hasan impressive and varied series of albums to his name. A largeproportion of this is devoted to classical music. His first albumin that domain was Trumpet Concertos (1983) and it earned him aGrammy. But this doesn't mean jazz is only second choice as heshows on his recent album He and She (Blue Note). As a child of avery musical family, he sees himself as a custodian of jazz fromthe Golden Age. To that end, Marsalis uses all kinds of means,including the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (Marsalis beingartistic director at the Lincoln Center). The trumpeter/composerhas invited two Spanish guests for his performance at North SeaJazz, flamenco pianist Chano Dominguez and cajon player El Piraña.Marsalis will be performing The Vitoria Suite that is dedicated tothe Basque city of Vitoria-Gasteiz. In this composition, he crossesover into the terrain of flamenco.
