Alright everyone,

If you haven’t seen this documentary on Wynton Marsalis that aired about 30 years ago, check it out!! I had been looking for this video for a while since I had first heard about it, but now it’s on Vimeo. You can agree or disagree with any or everything that Skain says in this video, but his talent (or lack thereof, as commented on by one of his former teachers in NO) and hard work are evident in his playing even at this young age. I think that it’s an interesting look back in time at an artist that’s made an impression on soooo many people throughout this world!!
