Marshall Gilkes & WDR Big Band

Check it out—livestream here, today, Jan. 24th:

Livestream later! Farewell concert w/ Marshall Gilkes at the WDR Funkhaus in Cologne. Marshall Gilkes has played with the WDR for the past four years, and now he’s stepping down from the 2nd trombone position. For his “Farewell Concert,” Marshall has written a program of brilliant arrangements, also featuring the virtuoso New York trumpet player Mike Rodriguez. I’m very honored that Marshall wrote a nice bass feature, appropriately entitled “Plant Bassed.” We’ll be on the internet live at 20:00 in Germany/Europe and at 2 PM in the US/EST.
