OH, HOW YOU WANT to hate Wynton Marsalis.He is so technically proficient at his craft -- the trumpet -- that he seems soulless. The notes comes flowing out in such an error-free pattern as to render him almost robotic in his perfection.In addition, Marsalis' onstage reticence -- he hardly communicates verbally with his audience and is always seemingly looking away -- can be taken by some as arrogance, perhaps even a sense of contempt for the folks who make it all possible.And even if you don't read any of that into his performing persona, it can certainly be seen in his printed comments, in which he has criticized no less than the great Miles Davis, the father of modern jazz trumpet, and the entire field of fusion jazz.

Whoever coined the phrase "this is a man's world" clearly never visited Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Here, women and their wears, reign supreme. There are exceptions though. Award-winning American designer, Joseph Abboud, has been a fixture in men's fashion for decades. He's dressed everyone from Wynton Marsalis to baseball great Nomar Garciaparra. He'll lead off the festivities today with a show at New York Public Library. I'm excited. He knows what looks good on a guy. Lucky for you Baltimore readers, you can find his creations at J.S. Edwards in Pikesville.

If jazz is America's classical music, why aren't there more groups like the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra?Clearly, if one accepts the idea that jazz has more than its share of great composers, then the need for a jazz repertory company seems obvious. How can the work of a genius like Duke Ellington be treasured if his compositions and arrangements are no longer being played?But as the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra made plain during its performance at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Tuesday, hearing another jazz band play Ellington is not the same thing as hearing the Ellington Band itself.

Aaron Catrell Watson, a Baltimore musician who once jammed with Wynton Marsalis, died of a brain tumor March 30 at his home in the Loch Raven neighborhood of Baltimore County. He was 20. Mr. Watson was born in Baltimore and raised in Randallstown and West Baltimore. He was 11 years old and a student at Mount Royal Middle School when he began playing trumpet. "Aaron's music teacher asked that his family help keep him from getting a big head because after three months he played with the experience of someone who had been playing for five years," said his father, Paul Watson of Owings Mills.

MOSCOW -- Wynton Marsalis was here to play his trumpet and talk about jazz yesterday, but let's just take that as a starting point because there's always a wider sense of things -- particularly in a country like Russia that lives by suggestion and improvisation."

With so much unimaginable destruction and tragedy in New Orleans, it was only a matter of time before the pop music industry sought a way to help, as it has done in response to Sept. 11 and the deadly tsunami that devastated parts of southern Asia in late 2004. Tonight at 8, country heartthrob and Louisiana native Tim McGraw will co-headline A Concert for Hurricane Relief, an hourlong telethon on NBC, MSNBC and CNBC. Also featuring Harry Connick Jr. and Wynton Marsalis -- two major stars from the pop and jazz worlds who also happen to be from New Orleans -- the music special will be broadcast from NBC studios in New York.

Nothing Like the Sun."

The only way to find a Ken Burns film wanting is to measure it against another one of his films. "Jazz," the 19-hour Burns documentary premiering tomorrow night on PBS, isn't the acclaimed filmmaker's greatest work. "The Civil War" is more moving and lyrical, while "Baseball" has a greater resonance and more satisfying narrative conclusion. And yet, "Jazz," the third and final leg of Burns' great American trilogy, reaches so high, "swings" so wide and is so wise in so many ways that you can't help but call it epic.
