“ Got a heart like Indiana
laugh like Louisiana
take me down to Alabama
show me some of that laid back vibe
kissing while we’re fishing in the moonlight…
Shine like California
high like an Arizona noontime, baby when you’re all mine
Anywhere, any place I go
You feel like home to me ”
Lulu And The Lampshades - You’re Gonna Miss Me
“ This is the first day of the rest of your life.
Because even in the dark you can still see the light.
It’s gonna be alright. ”

In 1997 Marsalis became the first jazz musician ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for music, for his epic oratorio, Blood on the Fields. In 2010 he launched a multi-year lecture series at Harvard to promote awareness of the importance of cultural literacy, with a special focus on the relationship between American music and the American identity.
