Criss Cross Jazz 1253 CD

Wycliffe Gordon & The Garden City Gospel Choir

In The Cross

Available: September 17, 2004

In The Cross is trombonist Wycliffe Gordon's fifth outing as a leader on Criss Cross and perhaps his most personal statement.

Augmenting a strong roots-to-modern jazz sextet with a gospel choir from Georgia, his home state, Gordon presents a joyful noise, referencing the vocabularies of Armstrong, Ellington and Jelly Roll Morton with an eye keenly honed in on the present day.

In the band: Marcus Printup on trumpet, Victor Goines on saxes and clarinet, Eric Reed on piano with bassist Reginald Veal and drummer Alvin Atkinson Jr.
