Jazz Portrait of Wynton Marsalis by Grace McKee


I had no sooner invited Grace McKee to paint another jazz portrait for Jazz&Jazz than she sent me this masterpiece of Wynton Marsalis. And with good reason. Her daughter Sharon has interviewed Wynton several times over the years.

“Through his amazing music, Wynton Marsalis has helped get a younger generation of fans interested in jazz. I’ve been lucky enough to see him perform Jazz At Lincoln Center numerous time. And as talented as he is, he has remained humble throughout the years.”
