Wycliffe Gordon coming to Princeton

This week's Time Off magazine in Packet Publications newspapers has a cover story by Adam Grybowski about trombonist Wycliffe Gordon (, who's coming to Princeton next week for a series of workshops in schools and a concert. If you haven't enjoyed Mr. Gordon's playing yet, get your tickets now -- he's a wonderful musician. From his stint with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra to Randy Sandke's avant-garde "The Subway Ballet" to his own quartet, he's always exhibited great technique and sense of swing.
I first heard him during one the initial concerts in the Jazz Friday series at Peddie School in the late 1990s ... what a great performance.
