I’ve written a lot about classic rock on the blog, but my favorite living musician is probably Wynton Marsalis, one of the best jazz and classical musicians of all time.

I actually had a chance to meet Wynton Marsalis in high school. He played a show near my hometown, and after the show ended, a bunch of us waited outside for him. To our surprise, he actually came out and invited us into his dressing room. We talked for a few minutes, I got his autograph, and then we shook hands and went our separate ways.

Marsalis is the epitome of cool, and he is one of the main reasons I enjoy jazz so much.
