New audio samples of LBB Charts

I am uploading the first page of sample mp3’s of my Little Big Band Charts. It is a time consuming endeavor but eventually hope to have them all posted. It will give a better idea of what the arrangements sound like. It’s not perfect, but it’s an improvement over nothing. I’ve been relying on word-of-mouth to get the word out. I hope you enjoy the charts!

2013 Performance Schedule Updated

I had a stroke earlier this year and was out of service for a while. My health is much better and recovery is steady and relatively swift. I thank the lord for my progress and count myself lucky with the remarkable recovery. I am walking unassisted again and back playing my trombone and writing music.

Performance Calendar Updated

Updated my Gig Calendar for the rest of the 2012.

German Trombone Fun

Bone players know how to have fun.

Urbie Green - 21 Trombones

A Discussion of Urbie Green and 21 Trombones. I agree with Jiggs, the trombone definitely picked me.

Bart van Lier & 20 trombones

What a great tribute to Urbie Green and his 21 trombones. Such a warm lush sound. Is there a better instrument than the trombone? I don’t think so...
