Wynton Marsalis Net Worth $15 Million

Wynton Marsalis was born the second of six sons of Ellis Louis Marsalis, Jr., a pianist and music professor, and Delores. His fathers and three brothers Branford, Delfeayo, and Jason are also jazz musicians, and influenced by them, Wynton developed his love for music from an early age. When he was eight, Wynton performed at Fairview Baptist Church, and at the age of 14, he played with the New Orleans Symphony, New Orleans Youth Orchestra, and with local jazz and funk bands.

Marsalis went to Benjamin Franklin High School, from where he matriculated in 1979 and then moved to New York City to study at the famous Juilliard. While at college, Wynton supported himself beforming regular gigs, and a year later he joined the Art Barkley’s Jazz Messengers. In the following years, Marsalis played with superstars like Sarah Vaughan, Clark Terry, Herbie Hancock, Sweets Edison, Ron Carter, Sonny Rollins, Tony Williams, and Dizzy Gillespie, among others, which did his net worth no harm at all.

Marsalis was a host on the educational television series “Marsalis on Music” in 1995 on PBS, a show about classical and jazz music with the script written by Wynton himself. The series was also aired on National Public Radio, and received the George Foster Peabody Award. Wynton co-founded a jazz program in 1987 at Lincoln Center, New York, and 16 years later, he established the world’s first jazz institution with the name of Frederick P. Rose Hall. He had a notable collaboration with one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Eric Clapton, and the duo recorded an album called “Wynton Marsalis & Eric Clapton Play the Blues” in 2011.

Marsalis currently works as Music Director for Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Artistic Director for Jazz at Lincoln Center, and is also a director of the Juilliard Jazz Studies program. Wynton has published five books: “Jazz in the Bittersweet Blues of Life”, “Sweet Swing Blues on the Road”, “Jazz ABZ”, and “To a Young Musician: Letters from the Road”. Most recently, he released “Moving to Higher Ground: How Jazz Can Change Your Life”; all have contributed to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Wynton Marsalis is a bachelor, and his current status is single, but he does have four children. He lives in New York City, and is a prominent philanthropist, having helped with raising over $3 million for musicians and institutions after Hurricane Katrina. Marsalis also funds a scholarship for talented musicians, and pays for their medical bills, in addition to other charitable work.

#Quote
1 I know what it's really like to be called a nigger for real, by black and white people. I'm not interested in presenting that to the world as my expression. And I have to make the point to the younger people in rap, we was black in the 60s, man. We were black in 1974. We wasn't waiting for y'all to tell us what it was to be black. You're a guy from the Something Housing Project with limited education and now you're going to tell me what it means to be a black person in America? Man, you must really think you're in a video.
2 In jazz you have the opportunity to establish your equality - based on your ability.
3 "It's warm, it's intellectual, it's spiritual, it's tawdry, it's worldly, it's provincial. Anything you want, he has it in his sound. (Commenting on the influence Louie Armstrong has on Jazz).
4 Jazz is a music of conservation, and that's what you need in a democracy.
5 Now, one day the entire world will be the house of everyday. That's not yet, but it's what people in the arts strive for.
