Grammy Award • Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album: Life in the Bubble (2014)


“The Big Phat Band provides potent testimony to the sheer exhilaration of big band jazz…a combination of crisp accuracy and fiery soloing.” - LA Times

“I was immediately taken by Gordon’s contemporary musical viewpoint, the dynamics of his “Big Phat Band,” its bevy of superb soloists, and the exhilaration of its sound.” - Quincy Jones

Gordon is an arranger of absolutely no limit of musical styles and composer of some of the best compositions ever. He is a man of exquisite musical taste. I am truly blessed to have him in my life.” —Johnny Mathis
