Mardi Gras Explodes on the Dallas Scene a Few Months Ahead of Schedule

It’s Mardi Gras on September! Wycliffe Gordon, one of the top trombonists of his generation, opens the fall season of Sammons Jazz with a two-set tribute to The Big Easy and two of its best-known native sons: trumpet players Louis Armstrong and Wynton Marsalis.

Wycliffe starts the concert with a nod to Satchmo by trading the trombone for the trumpet. In the second set, he recalls the early days of his career playing New Orleans-style music as the trombonist in the Wynton Marsalis Septet.
