Wycliffe Gordon's International All Stars


Date & Time: 
Jan 13 2018 - 8:00pm - 11:00pm

When talking about trombone in traditional and straight-ahead jazz, we talk about Wycliffe Gordon.

His latest album is a tribute to Louis Armstrong, and he recently completed a series of workshops at colleges and festivals, a week at the Blue Note with David Sanborn, and a tour to celebrate the centennial anniversaries of Ella, Monk, Mongo and Dizzy. 

The son of a piano-playing gospel preacher, Gordon came to prominence as an original member of the Wynton Marsalis Septet and has been connected with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra since 1989.

He has 20 albums out as leader and appears on over 300 recordings, with Wynton Marsalis, Winard Harper, Anat Cohen, Roswell Rudd, Marcus Roberts, Natalie Merchant, Paul Simon and many others.
