About

Join us on Colleton Street in front of The Willcox for our latest edition of this super-popular event. The afternoon session brings Evan Christopher, “one of the world’s major clarinetists” (The Wall Street

Journal) and a longtime icon of classic, traditional New Orleans jazz music. Experience what Jazz at Lincoln Center describes as “irresistibly enjoyable music performed by one of New Orleans’ top virtuosos.” In the evening, superstar jazz trombonist Wycliffe Gordon takes over as headliner. A 13-time winner of Trombonist of the Year from the Jazz Journalists Association and a six-time winner of Downbeat’s International Critics Poll, Gordon has performed at the Grammy Awards, been featured on Live from Lincoln Center, and performed as a featured soloist on the Ken Burns series “Jazz,” among many other achievements and honors.
