Fernando Ortiz de Urbina

And with him came scandal: Wynton Marsalis URL:
A messiah for some, a fallen angel for others, and always controversial, Wynton Marsalis has marked the jazz of the last quarter of the 20th century. Since his irruption in the New York scene more than 25 years ago, Marsalis has been a sensation due to his declarations, his brilliant list of successes, his intensive and varied activity, and not any less, his work as composer. In this review of his career, we will make a special emphasis in Marsalis as the materialization of an aesthetic ideal (coming from the literary tradition of Ralph Ellison and Albert Murray), in the secondary role that his music has had in history, and the attempt to codify jazz based on this ideal, as well as the consequences.
