Some of you know that I used to play the trombone in high school and in college. Many of you were not aware of this particular facet of my persona.
One of my favorite trombone-based albums is the obscure and amazingly-named “Bone Voyage” by the Airmen of Note. Bone Voyage features some of the craziest jazz trombone recordings that I have ever heard. They must have had some well developed embouchures.
The entire album is available online and it’s been converted from the original LP into 64 kbps MP3 format.
