Blue Note trumpeting Marsalis deal

Musician begins work on first disc over summer

NEW YORK — Jazz trumpeter and bandleader Wynton Marsalis has inked a record deal with Blue Note Records.

He parted ways with his longtime label home, Sony Music, earlier this year.

Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but Marsalis will begin recording his first disc for Blue Note over the summer. Deal marks a reunion between Marsalis and Blue Note topper Bruce Lundvall, who first signed the horn player to his deal at Sony’s Columbia imprint in 1981.

“Twenty-two years later this ‘young lion’ has grown into a master,” Lundvall said.

Marsalis has recorded dozens of studio albums and live sets over the course of his career with Sony. He’s also acted as the artistic director of jazz at Gotham’s Lincoln Center and won nine Grammy awards.
