A darkened stage, a moment of silence … and a mysterious note of jazz. Opening TEDGlobal 2012 in Edinburgh, Scotland: Jonathan Batiste, a musician who has delighted audiences in more than 40 countries and collaborated with diverse musicians from Prince to Jimmy Buffett to Wynton Marsalis. He’s the co-director and music curator at the National Jazz Museum in Harlem.
