Description

Wycliffe Gordon, a world-class trombonist-composer and longstanding member of the Jazz at Lincoln Centre Orchestra directed by Wynton Marsalis, re-imagines 15 classic New Orleans tunes on 'Dreams of New Orleans'. Gordon injects clever intros and surprising twists that breathe new life into these unforgettable songs from the ragtime era and the birth of hot jazz.

Gordon puts his own spin on warhorses like "When the Saints Go Marching In", "St. Louis Blues", "Tiger Rag" and "Royal Garden Blues", while paying reverence to the tradition of the music created by jazz innovators such as Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Kid Ory and Louis Armstrong. Utilising the Chesky Records 'Binaural+' recording technique 'Dreams of New Orleans' sounds fresh, crystal clear and live, with a polished sheen.

Personnel: Wycliffe Gordon (trombones, trumpet, vocals), Jon Erik-Kellso (trumpet, backing vocals), Adrian Cunningham (clarinet, soprano saxophone), Michael Dease (trombone, tenor and baritone saxophone, trumpet, backing vocals), Matt Munisteri (guitar, banjo, vocals), Ibanda Ruhumbika (tuba), Marion Felder (drums)
