    There was a time when I didn't like Wynton, the person or the music. The main reason for that was the horrible things he said about Miles at the beginning of his career. Then I spent a summer researching and writing about his early artistic developement. Now I think he's a genious. If you ever see him speak when he's not just reading from a teleprompter, you see a very logical train of thought. You know, out of high school he was offered scholarships to Harvard and Yale? Smart guy... Anyways, here's a link to one of my favorite Wynton interviews.
