Then the band played tracks from Wynton’s album entitled The Marciac Suite: Loose Duck, Jean-Louis is Everywhere, Guy Lafitte, Marciac Fun, Marciac Moon, Mademoiselle de Gascony, Armagnac dreams, B is for Boussaget, For my Kids at College of Marciac, Sunflowers.
As encore they played: Ain’ No, What have I done (from the album: Unforgivable Blackness), and Just friends. Following you can enjoy some pictures from the soundcheck, yesterday afternoon at 4pm.

  2. I also want to know how to purchase a recording of Ain’ No. Such a powerful piece. I can’t stop thinking about it.

  3. My first Marciac visit this year. My wife and I got to see you in concert. Great concert!! You made my wife’s day by signing an autograph in the square earlier in the day.

    It was great to see you take an interest in the young people playing jazz earlier in the day. Such a professional to take time for others.

    Thanks to you and your group for a great concert.

  5. Thank you for a beautiful concert in Marciac! My friend and I enjoyed it enormously. Is the piece “ain’ no” available somewhere?

  6. Hi Wynton…good to see you again…I was just browsing your site and saw my fellow FAMUAN – Wycliffe Gordon. He visited Jacksonville about 2 months ago and I lost contact with him. I have emailed his office in New York. It is wonderful to see you continually do so well – 20 years of continuous touring – that is awesome! Continued success and anytime you are in Jacksonville, Florida please look me up (904) 476-5487/cell. I may just have some more soul food for you! Way back in 1986 Wycliffe brought you and the band to my mother’s house in Lakeland, FL for some soul food and you guys enjoyed…would love to host again…stay blessed!
