Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Miller favorite Wycliffe Gordon returns with a special concert for the holidays. Coming to jazz from a childhood steeped in gospel music, Gordon has played with the Wynton Marsalis Septet and Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. He is an undisputed master of his instrument, a six-time recipient of Trombonist of the Year from the Jazz Journalists Association. Joined for this concert by special guests, he captures the spirit of the season, putting an inventive spin on traditional Christmas favorites.
