Wycliffe Gordon With The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra

Hear highlights from a concert by The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra with special guest Wycliffe Gordon recorded last weekend at The Kirkland Performance center. Wycliffe Gordon is a multi award and poll-winning trombonist, in addition to playing the trumpet and singing, he also conducted SRJO. Wycliffe Gordon also composed most of the music in this hour of highlights.

The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra's pair of concerts in Seattle and Kirkland last weekend was sold out so the broadcast is welcome news to those who were unable to obtain tickets for these performances.  Mr. Gordon is also a regular at Centrum's Jazz Port Townsend where he serves as a faculty member and an artist in residence.  He is active in jazz education and tours internationally and has recorded prolifically.  

The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra is co-directed by Clarence Acox and Michael Brockman and presents a season of five pairs of concerts in Seattle and Kirkland, three of which are also given in Edmonds. In addition, the SRJO also presents annual performances of the Sacred Music of Duke Ellington, this year on December 30 and 31.
