He sure can be embarrassing, can't he? This was painful.

I give Colbert props for singing a pretty decent harmony part to the Star Spangled Banner! :tup

Colbert also made some funny jazz-related jokes in a recent "Who's Not Honoring Me Now" segment.

While watching it the other night:

Me: Wynton is the most famous "jazz musician" on earth.

Music, but not jazz, inclined lady friend: He sure acts like it.

Smart girl.

My wife and I met Wynton backstage before an April, 1982 concert in Madison, Wisconsin, when I interviewed him for the Daily Cardinal (University of Wisconsin student newspaper).

Her comment when she saw this Colbert show: "Boy, is he full of himself. And he's really become heavy. Now his head looks like a pumpkin."

can't say much, but just interviewed him, and he seemed much thinner in person -

As I watched Colbert, I thought that it would be nice if Wynton had more of a light touch, was more likeable and engaging on TV. Since he seems to get most of the very rare opportunities for a jazz artist to appear on TV in the U.S., if his personality was more like, say, Barack Obama's, ijust to pick out a random example, it might actually be positive for jazz.
