SVETLANA SHMULYIAN & THE DELANCEY FIVE
From premier NYC jazz clubs to the underground world of NYC subway and secret speakeasy events, Svetlana & The Delancey Five is a "very sweet & naughty" (Jazzlives), "energetic" (Wall Street Journal), "delightful" (WRHU Jazz Radio), and cinematically handsome Golden Age-inspired sextet. Rocking hard swinging 20s-40s jazz standards as well as charismatic originals, and featuring Svetlana's sultry "made for jazz" (streetcredmusic) vocals backed by the band members' inspired harmonizing and virtuoso instrumentals - their tunes are so infectious, they'll sweep you off your feet and steal your heart away!
WYCLIFFE GORDON (trombone / vocals)
Musical ambassador and interpreter of America's music, Wycliffe Gordon experiences an impressive career touring the world performing hard-swinging, straight-ahead jazz receiving great acclaim from audiences and critics alike. His unmatched modern mastery of the plunger mute and his exceptional technique and signature sound, has solidified Gordon a place in musical history known as one of the top trombonists of his generation. The Critics seem to agree. Wycliffe was named "Best in Trombone" by the Downbeat Critics Poll three years running now (2014, 2013 & 2012) and Jazz Journalists Association named him "Trombonist of the Year" in 2013, as well as previous years 2001, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2012. He is a past recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Vanguard Award, among others.
