Wynton Marsalis to Appear on 60 Minutes

Tomorrow night-Wed., Oct. 13-CBS’s 60 Minutes Wednesday will air “Come Blow You Horn,” a story on trumpeter Wynton Marsalis (pictured), the new Jazz at Lincoln Center complex in New York City and the future of jazz.

60 Minutes airs at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Below is CBS’s description of the story. Further details about the story will be posted at http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/60II/main3475.shtml; and the story itself will be posted there from this Wednesday on.

COME BLOW YOUR HORN

You could say that Wynton Marsalis is at a crossroads. He’s about to turn 43, he just changed record labels and he and his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra are about to move from Alice Tully Hall, where they have performed for almost two decades, to a new, 1,200 seat room that is the first concert hall built specifically for jazz. And while some critics have said that jazz itself is at a crossroads, struggling to survive, Marsalis disagrees.
