For the second year in a row, Wycliffe Gordon has won the category of "Best Trombone" in the Annual Downbeat Critics Poll. He kicks off the holiday season at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola with a series of performances beginning Thanksgiving night, featuring the music of Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Tommy Dorsey, and Jimmy Dorsey. It’s always a pleasure to welcome back this former star of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Wynton Marsalis Septet, and his current groups are equally impressive. As Wynton Marsalis says, "Just his presence is a creative experience."
