Wycliffe is one of my heroes. This five minute live clip off of someone's phone is a masterclass on style, phrasing, style, high playing, style and just about everything else. Did I mention the style this guy plays every single note and phrase with? He is a musician who happens to play the trombone. And he happens to play it better than most. Bebop, swing, gospel, dixieland. I have yet to hear him play in a style that doesn't sound just as convincing as the last.
What a gift it is for all of us to be alive at the same time this guy is making music. I've got to go practice now.
