Marsalis has been associated with CBS News for a number of years. He has appeared on "60 Minutes," and it's his trumpet fanfare that opens "Sunday Morning" each week.
He is a composer and has been the artistic director of jazz at New York City's Lincoln Center since 1987. He has won nine Grammy Awards.
