Off Topic: Wynton Marsalis MLK speech

Sorry for the off topic post, but a good friend of mine forwarded this to me and I thought it was worth sharing. Wynton is one of my musical hero's and gave an inspiring speech for Martin Luther King Jr. day at Tulane yesterday.

If you haven't seen it already, Wynton is in the new Apple iTunes/iPod ads. Great stuff.

Thanks for the link Gabe. That's a great feature! It's helping to reinforce my admiration for Wynton.
Jim,

That was very cool.  We hope that folks don't remember MLK as just a day off from work.  Wynton is an incredible and talented musician, the Boston Symphony played one of his works last year, All Rise.  I highly reccomend a listen for those who have never heard the piece.  We also did an interactive web piece on our website.  If you have a moment please check it out, Wynton is towards the bottom of the page.
