    He's alright. He's very technically skilled, but his music has always left me cold for some reason. He seems like a pompous asshole outside of his own music though. He acts like its up to him to decide what is or isn't jazz, especially whenever he talks about free jazz and fusion (or really pretty much anything from 1960 until he started recording). Plus he was the main consultant on Ken Burns' jazz documentary miniseries and that series treated Wynton basically as the second coming after jazz lost its way in the 60s and 70s, and it bothers me that he would push for himself to be portrayed in that way.

    ^ you just don't like him.

    Wynton's one of the best jazz musicians playing today. End of story.

    That said, I like Terence Blanchard better because he's done some wicked scores for Spike Lee.

    Black codes from the underground is his point. A black man doesn't have to accept hip hop to be true. I know white dudes who say they don't like heavy metal - No one calls them a sell out for that.
