HAVANA TIMES, Jan. 4 — In contrast to politicians, “culture brings people together,” noted Wynton Marsalis, 49, in an interview with 60-Minutes aired Sunday about his recent trip to Cuba heading up the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

The master of the trumpet, composition and arrangement from New Orleans is shown performing at Havana theaters, on the street and also in workshops held at Cuban music schools in early October.
