Wycliffe Gordon

Our 29th Annual CSU East Bay Jazz Festival is April 18 & 19, 2014 featuring jazz trombonist Wycliffe Gordon.

The festival will kick off on Friday, April 18, with a concert by the East Bay Jazz Orchestra with special guest artist Wycliffe Gordon, followed by festival activities for registered jazz bands on Saturday, April 19. The festival encourages and engages participants through interactive learning and playing. Each participating band has a 1/2 hour warmup time followed by a 45-minute time slot at their performance site. That 45 minutes can be used any way the director wants, and is most helpfully worked out where the participating band plays for 20-25 minutes their planned set (usually 3 tunes). During that time, the adjudicators will be sitting in the audience area speaking their comments into a recorder. When the band's set is done, the remaining time is used for the interactive clinic with the adjudicators who will be demonstrating the concepts they wish to convey with the bands. See the Jazz Festival Details page for the Friday and Saturday schedule and a list of provided equipment and other details.
