Wynton Marsalis

Interviewee, Hell Fighter

American trumpeter, composer, teacher, and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center, Wynton Marsalis has won nine Grammy Awards. His composition Blood on the Fields was the first jazz composition to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. He is the only musician to win a Grammy Award in jazz and classical during the same year.

Wynton as a world class Jazz musician and leader has graced the Hellfighter documentary with his presence and thoughts on the racial injustice still prevalent in America. “Anyone who looks at the racial disparities in the present-day United States and doesn’t see the need for wholesale social change needs his or her head examined,” he succinctly surmises.
