Lynn's Comments: As a professional trumpet player, my brother, Alan, introduced me to some wonderful music, and to artists I might never have learned to appreciate--like Wynton Marsalis. A dear friend of mine wound up in the hospital one time and was in so much pain, there was little we could do to comfort him. I took him a cassette player, headphones, and some tapes--one of which was Wynton Marsalis. This music, he later told me, made his illness bearable and aided in his recovery. I wanted to say the name Wynton Marsalis out loud in the newspaper to thank him for helping my friend. I wonder if he knows how much his gift means to the people he shares it with.
