Louis Armstrong (a.k.a. “Pops” and “Satchmo”) is arguably the most important and original American musician in history, and this entertaining and original show celebrates his musical legacy with an ensemble led by SMF veteran and Waynesboro, Georgia native Wycliffe Gordon (top). Mr. Gordon is a six-time “Trombonist of the Year” winner (Jazz Journalist Association, including 2011), and one of the most unique and charismatic soloists in jazz. The city of Augusta, GA recently established “Wycliffe Gordon Day” on August 7th. “Armstrong was and is phenomenal,” says Wycliffe Gordon. “Both as a musician and a person, he meant so much to so many people.”

National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Kenny Barron began his career in the 1950s as a teenager, playing with such jazz greats as Philly Joe Jones, Roy Haynes, Lee Morgan and James Moody. He worked for years with Dizzy Gillespie, co-founded the group Sphere, played with Stan Getz in his final years, and has performed and collaborated with a who’s who of jazz musicians. Mr. Barron is heralded by the Los Angeles Times as “one of the top jazz pianists of our time,” and this recital promises to be very special. “…the most lyrical jazz pianist of our time.” Jazz Weekly
