Gordon Getty - Plumb Jack (Concert Version) mp3 flac
Wycliffe Gordon wails on his soprano trombone on a SNOWY day in Dallas for the original CancerBlows concert and recording
As a composer, Gordon Getty is in the unusual and awkward position of having too much money; an heir to the Getty fortune, he has had a difficult time being taken seriously as a composer because of an assumption that he can pay the best performers to take on his music, so did not have to work his way up through the ranks. This recording of Plump Jack, his opera based on the character of Falstaff, uses the concert version of the piece rather than the full opera. Several scenes are omitted and several others are presented only in excerpts, so it's difficult to assess what the overall impact of the opera would be. Getty writes mostly in a lyrical post-Straussian idiom.
Jack Leon Gordon (November 10, 1939 – April 19, 2005), also known as Samuel Isaac Gordon and Clifford William Johnson, was an American businessman and entertainment manager. Gordon was most known as the former manager and later husband of American singer–songwriter La Toya Jackson. In addition to being Jackson's manager, Gordon later served as the manager of American tabloid subject later turned porn actor John Wayne Bobbitt. Gordon died of cancer on April 19, 2005 at age 65.
