Experience Mardi Gras in September During This Tribute to The Big Easy

It’s Mardi Gras on September! Wycliffe Gordon, one of the top trombonists of his generation, opens the fall season of Sammons Jazz with a two-set tribute to The Big Easy and two of its best-known native sons: trumpet players Louis Armstrong and Wynton Marsalis.

Wycliffe starts the concert with a nod to Satchmo by trading the trombone for the trumpet. In the second set, he recalls the early days of his career playing New Orleans-style music as the trombonist in the Wynton Marsalis Septet.
