Photo: Wynton rehearsing with the Septet in Marciac
For two days, on August 5 and 6, Wynton rehearsed with his septet for the upcoming concert in Marciac. They played songs from the Marciac Suite: Loose Duck, Jean-Louis Is Everywhere, Mademoiselle D’Gascony, Armagnac Dreams, Marciac Fun, Marciac Moon, Guy Lafitte, B Is For Boussaget.
The members of Wynton Marsalis Septet in Marciac 2007 are: Wynton Marsalis (trumpet), Wycliffe Gordon (trombone), Victor Goines (tenor sax, soprano sax, clarinets), Sherman Irby (alto sax), Herlin Riley (drums), Jonathan Bastiste (piano), Rodney Whitaker (bass).
Tonight the concert will take place at 11pm. You can listen to it live on Radio France Inter (click the link on top-left: écoutez le direct).
Following you can watch to some still images from the video-clips we filmed during rehearsals.
Quel dommage! Just as I was ready to hear Mademoiselle D’Gascony, my favorite cut from the Marciac Suite live, it seems I have missed the broadcast again. Luigi you’ve given us the experience of Marciac live and I have missed both occasions. Nonetheless, many thanks for your efforts and sharing with us your time with Wynton et al.

Well, anyway….Thanks a lot to MASTER MUSICIANS, et al….of course..it was a little bit/a try of almost as been there….just imagination.
