Wycliffe Gordon, a master of the trombone, trumpet and sousaphone has always been known as impressive. His bubbling, barking sousaphone accentuates the lively band’s instrumentation in his new release, Dreams of New Orleans. From his upbeat and smooth "St. Louis Blues" to the down tempo political “Down By the Riverside”, Gordon brings a gorgeous range of Jazz Music that makes you feel like your right in front of him and the rest of band performing live. Utilizing the Chesky Records Binaural Style Dreams of New Orleans sounds fresh, crystal clear and live with a polished sheen.

"…The playing of the Retrospect Ensemble is spot-on from beginning to end. Tempos are brisk but not pressed to the point that compromises articulation or unanimity of bowing and fingering, and the readings are buoyant, energetic, and fresh-sounding. Complemented by Linn's wonderfully clear and transparent multichannel recording, Bach's music shines." ~Fanfare
