Affectionately referred to as a “force of nature,” composer and trombonist extraordinaire Wycliffe Gordon joins SRJO for a salute to the great trombonists J.J. Johnson, Sam Nanton, Tommy Dorsey, and more. Gordon is a former member of the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and the Wynton Marsalis Sextet, has been a guest artist on Billy Taylor’s “Jazz at the Kennedy Center” concert series, and featured in the bands of Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Tommy Flanagan, Shirley Horn, Joe Henderson, Eric Reed, and Branford Marsalis. Selections include Gordon’s original compositions featured on his acclaimed albums “Hello Pops!” and “The Search,” plus highly personal (and charming) vocal styling reminiscent of Louis Armstrong.
