Wycliffe Gordon with the Starkville Symphony Orchestra Big Band

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.
