Wycliffe’s long awaited soundtrack Within These Gates of Mine to the silent film “Within Our Gates” by African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, was released on Friday April 1, at the Savannah Music Festival.  Wycliffe’s 77 minute score was commissioned by Jazzmobile to accompany the film in 2011.  It was premiered with a live jazz orchestra at Columbia University in 2011 and again at Symphony Space in 2013.  This recording is from the live performance/screening of “Within Our Gates” in 2013.  The Soundtrack features all original compositions by Wycliffe Gordon performed by a 20-piece jazz orchestra including vocalists.  The soundtrack takes you on a musical journey set in the year 1920 and echoes sentiments prevalent throughout the film.
