TVNow Entertainment: A Little Daily NewsWynton Marsalis: Folks watching the Friday night benefit concert on NBC saw the master musician in prime form, blowing jazz licks on his horn with enough soul to energize the entire planet. He was in a zone. Let's hope BET lets him bring that horn to the network studio next Friday, September 9, when he joins a huge list of entertainers to help BET with its telethon to raise much needed aid for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Scheduled to begin at 7:30pm, the event will feature many entertainers who will make personal appeals for help. Some of the major players listed as participants include Alicia Keys, Master P, Usher, Diddy, Jay Z, Chris Rock, Stevie Wonder, Brandy, Erykah Badu and many more. Telethon viewers will be encouraged to call designated toll-free phone numbers to make financial pledges to the Red Cross relief efforts.
