Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album is a collection of pieces commissioned by TROMBOTEAM! in 2013. Funded by a successful Kickstarter campaign and private donations, these works were premiered in a single concert that summer. Upon receiving a Scholarly and Creative Arts Grant awarded by the University of Southern Mississippi's College of Arts and Letters, the prospect of recording this music became a reality. During the creative process, the composers received little direction outside of a rough time constraint and a choice to employ four or five trombones. The resulting variety of styles, sounds, and techniques is therefore a testament to their creativity and talent. No two compositions sound alike, yet we find each to be appealing and accessible a Read more remarkable feat indeed! The entire process has been rewarding, and we are thrilled to share this terrific new music. Read less
