Listening Session featuring Wycliffe Gordon

Apr 07, 2012 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM

Trombonist Wycliffe Gordon presents this Listening Session as part of the 2012 Louis Armstrong Legacy Program and Celebration, for which he has been named Artist-In-Residence. This event is open to the public.

Gordon has solidified a place in musical history as one of the top trombonists of his generation. The Jazz Journalists Association has named him Trombonist of the Year six times in the last ten years. He is a former member of the Wynton Marsalis Septet and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and has also been a featured guest artist on Billy Taylor's "Jazz at the Kennedy Center" series. Gordon currently serves on the faculty of the Jazz Arts Program at Manhattan School of Music. His work with young musicians from elementary schools to universities worldwide includes master classes, clinics, workshops, and lectures. In September Gordon released Hello Pops!, a tribute album to Louis Armstrong, Gordon’s favorite artist and a significant musical influence.
