Tomorrow night at 7:30, November 30th, 2010, I’ll be performing with the Starkville Symphony Orchestra Big Band at Bettersworth Auditorium in Lee Hall on the campus of Mississippi State University. Yes, the SSO has a big band. Or at least does for this concert. I got invited to play in the trombone section. When I heard the guest artist was going to be trombonist Wycliffe Gordon I jumped at the chance, even though it’s a long way to travel.
If I get the chance, I will do my best to come back with a better idea of Wycliffe’s embouchure type. Here’s another video of him, this time demonstrating plunger technique.
