The Greater St. Louis Jazz Festival headliner on Saturday night will be Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band. This Grammy award-winning band presents concerts all over the world, and is comprised of L.A’s finest jazz musicians. The UMSL Jazz Ensemble, directed by Jim Widner, will open the concert for Gordon Goodwin.
Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band, featuring 18 musicians, is one of the most exciting large jazz ensembles on the planet. Populated by L.A.’s finest players, the Big Phat Band takes the big band tradition into the new millennium with a contemporary, highly original sound featuring Goodwin’s witty, intricate, and hard-swinging compositions in a veritable grab bag of styles: swing, Latin, blues, classical, rock and more.
