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 and 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.

Joining him on stage are Sammons Jazz Artistic Director and Steinway Artist Arlington Jones on piano, James Driscoll on bass, and Andrew Griffith on drums.
