Palmetto Posaunen at Spoleto

Last Friday I had a chance to play two performances with the Palmetto Posaunen on the first day of the Piccolo Spoleto festival in Charleston, SC.

We had some guy named Wycliffe Gordon solo with us on two tunes. Here's one of them.
Oh, by the way, the first soloist, Steve Wilson, got his master's at USC. (I can't claim to have imparted any jazz wisdom, however)

Great video. Wycliffe sounds amazing, and Steve is great as always. I played with the Palmetto Posaunen for a few years while I was teaching in NC. What a fun group to play with! I miss them.

SOME guy named Wycliffe? He's the man!

Wait, is that really Steve? Hard to recognize him playing in what to him is the pedal range like that...

Love when Wycliffe throws Steve's arpeggios right back at him, classic
