    Wynton is a wonderful person, AND a great player/teacher.
    Say hello to Wynton for me, he is also one of the funniest people on this planet.
    Enjoy,
    Wilmer

    I assume he's doing a clinic for you. I saw him do a clinic when I was at Berklee and he did some sort of imitations of different players' styles....get him to do Clark Terry for you, it's great....

    Maybe you could ask him to play the 3 note game, where you sing three notes, and the player has to improvise around those three notes. Manny Laureano told me about a time when he and Marsalis played this, and said it was AMAZING!

    It's a really good example of seeing before playing.

    Have fun, and tell us about your experience!

    I have met him a few times. He is super nice and will treat you like he has known you for years.

    So, how'd it go with Mr. Marsalis today??? I'm curious to hear, as it's even more exciting than when Don Cherry came to my college to play and chat :play:
