1 Upcoming Shows Friday, 2/6/2015 Wycliffe Gordon
starting at 7:00 PM
The Jazz Festival Big Band is a jazz band of UW-Platteville students, faculty, alumni, and friends brought together as part of the annual University of Wisconsin-Platteville jazz festival. This year's special guest is trombonist Wycliffe Gordon.
Musical ambassador and interpreter of America’s music, Wycliffe Gordon has an impressive career touring the world performing hard swinging, straight ahead jazz receiving great acclaim from audiences and critics alike. His unmatched modern mastery of the plunger mute and his exceptional technique and signature sound has solidified Gordon a place in musical history known as one of the top trombonists of his generation. The Critics seem to agree. Wycliffe was named “Best in Trombone” by the Downbeat Critics Poll three years running (2012-2014) and Jazz Journalists Association named him “Trombonist of the Year” in 2013, as well as previous years 2001, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2012. He is a past recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Vanguard Award, among others. Tickets are available at tickets.uwplatt.edu
