I think that Wynton Marsalis is one of the most intellectual, informative musicians active today. His knowledge and appreciation of ALL styles of music is a resource not to be missed. Wynton posts something most days and they are very enlightening and entertaining. Peeking in on the workings of this unique musical talent is a major treat.

He has posted live, streaming video during rehearsals and sound-checks. These are great fun. You not only get to hear some great music, but you are sitting in on the discussions and exchanges that result in the final performance piece.

Here is the link to a video he posted where master trumpet-maker Dave Monette,  delivered a new trumpet to Wynton at Lincoln Center:

Watch him try out the new horn, and watch Monette try to contain his joy at hearing the instrument taken for a test-drive by the master. This is great, insider stuff that enriches the jazz experience for me.
