Wycliffe Gordon 07/01/2008

Wycliffe is the large trombone player there. I got to see this man live and it was an hour of orgasmic bliss. The huge range of sounds that came out of that man's horn was astounding. Everything from raunchy swing to smooth blues ballads. If you like jazz of any sort, but especially jazz with very prominent trombone, listen to Gordon's music. He does arrange and write some of his own stuff, but whether playing his or someone else's music, it's glorious.

His singing's only ok...and his scat is decent. But his trombone is pure joy.
