Wynton Marsalis signs to BooseysLeading jazz musician, trumpeter and composer, Wynton Marsalis has signed an exclusive agreement with Boosey & Hawkes who will represent Marsalis’s compositions on a worldwide basis.
In 1997, Marsalis was the first jazz artist to receive the Pulitzer Prize in music for his work Blood on the Fields and he has also won nine Grammy awards.
Says Boosey & Hawkes General Manager, Marc Ostrow: "I am honored to work with such a brilliant American cultural icon. Marsalis's music, like those of the other legendary composers we represent, transcends any label, and its honesty and humanity are instantly felt by the listener. The music of Wynton Marsalis should live alongside the masterworks of Bartók, Bernstein, Copland, Stravinsky, as well as those of Andrew Hill and Charles Mingus."
Says Mr. Marsalis: "I am delighted to be published by Boosey & Hawkes and to be in the company of such distinguished classical and jazz composers."
