His prominent position in American culture was solidified in April 1997 when he became the first jazz artist to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize in music for his work Blood on the Fields, which was commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center. In 2012, he was named Managing and Artistic Director of the world-renowned arts organization. He had served as artistic director as well as music director of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (formerly known as the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra) since its inception. In 2011, CBS Television named him Cultural Correspondent. Since July 1, 2014, Mr. Marsalis has served as the Director of Jazz Studies at The Juilliard School. For his complete bio, click here.
