WYCLIFFE GORDON AND HIS INTERNATION ALL STARS

Wycliffe Gordon and his International All Stars formed in 2011, pays homage to musicians coming of age at the dawn of jazz recording, particularly jazz master Louis Armstrong and his All Stars. Returning to a time when musicians considered themselves entertainers first and foremost, striving to please the audience with their music, Wycliffe and his All Stars are consummate entertainers reveling in the old school traditions of the musicians of Armstrong’s generation.

The group, which features the talent of amazing musicians from all over the world, will include Adrian Cunningham (from Australia) on reeds and vocals, Ehud Asherie (from Israel) on piano, Corcoran Holt (who has roots in Ghana) on bass, drummer Alvin Atkinson Jr. (who is from the “gold coast”—North Carolina that is), and of course Wycliffe Gordon (who hails from Georgia) performing on trombone, trumpet, soprano trombone and vocals. Wycliffe and his band brilliantly combine the old school jazz with the new school traditions. This program is titled “Hello Pops” and features hits from Wycliffe’s recording “Hello Pops: A Tribute to Louis Armstrong” and the latest All Stars recording titled “I Give You Love,” which is a follow-up recording to the popular “Hello Pops.”

“This program is near and dear to my heart. Louis Armstrong is one of the biggest musical influencers or mine, and this show is a tribute to him as a musician and humanitarian. The show features many of the songs that Armstrong made famous including “When Your Smiling”, “Umbrella Man”, “On the Sunny Side of the Street” along with many of my originals including the title of the show “Hello Pops”—a full light-hearted tune that pays homage to Louis and is my way of saying hello. Other hits include, “Black and Blue”, “Swing That Music”, “Bourbon Street Parade” and Basin Street Blues. On this show, I sing and play several instruments including, trombone, soprano trombone, and trumpet.”—Wycliffe Gordon
