Wynton Marsalis is part of a new jazz album from Jazz at Lincoln Center honoring University of Kansas basketball.

Each of the Rock Chalk Suite’s 15 movements takes inspiration from a different University of Kansas hoops legend. It was written and recorded by the musicians of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.
