WHEN: Sunday, October 10, 5 PM

With a sound that shifts seamlessly from traditional New Orleans Jazz to Gospel to Modern Improv, Wycliffe Gordon is one of the most versatile trombonists in jazz today. Hard-swinging and straight-ahead, his playing has been universally hailed by critics as powerful, sweet, and clean. He is revered for playing with anyone, anywhere—from the jazz party circuit to Lincoln Center.

The Antonio Hart Quintet
WHEN: Sunday, November 14, 5 PM

Baltimore native and School for the Arts alum Antonio Hart heads home for the second concert of the season. He has played all over the map and his music—infused with African, Latin, and Gospel elements—shows it. In both standards and originals, Hart speaks with his own voice. Scott Yanow of All Music Guide muses, Hart’s music “avoids being predictable or merely revisiting the past.”
