The word "prodigy" might have been coined expressly for Wynton Marsalis, who won Grammy Awards for both jazz and classical music at the age of 22. This stylishly produced program opens at Wynton's studio in New York City, where he talks about his philosophy, his compositional methods, and his laid-back yet demanding approach to working with other musicians. Halfway through, the program shifts to his swinging hometown of New Orleans, where he reflects on his musical roots, the history of jazz, and even Jelly Roll Morton. Intimate performance footage of Wynton, his band members, and his father Ellis is included.
