ONE SHOW: 6:00pm

Legendary trombonist Wycliffe Gordon appears in concert with Young Sounds of Arizona, directed by Andrew Gross, and The Nash Legacy Ensembles.

Jazz Journalists Association named Wycliffe Gordon 2022 “Trombonist of the Year” for the record-breaking 15th time, and he’s topped Downbeat Critics Poll for “Best Trombone” for an unprecedented six times (2020, 2018, 2016, 2014, 2013 & 2012).   Recent awards include the “Louie Award”, the International Trombone Award and the Satchmo Award, among others.  Wycliffe is a prolific recording artist and is extremely popular for his unmatched signature sound, plunger technique and unique vocals.  He can be heard on hundreds of recordings, soundtracks, live DVD’s and documentaries, and has an extensive catalog of original compositions that span the various timbres of jazz and chamber music.  His arrangement of the theme song to NPR’s “All Things Considered” is heard daily across the globe.
