Sunday, 29 October 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Two Trombone players walk into a bar. We can’t drink alone, let’s get more Trombone players down here. The sweet-sounding and dexterous 1948 NY Bach 6 Trombone of Kaito Walley with the chainsaw-like tone of Damian Forlong’s 1977 Jiggs Whigham King 2b blend together like a G&T, a bogan and coke or a shandy.
Playing hard swinging classics and blues made famous by JJ Johnson and Kai Winding and a selection of tunes showcasing this most noble, beautiful, awe-inspiring, beautiful, preferred by the God and Darth Vader of instruments.
Every Trombone player from the length and breadth of the city has been invited to play for the grand finale of this show for a mass (bunch? Gaggle? Herd? Stampede? ) of Trombone thunder.
If you don’t like the Trombone, it’s worth going just to hear the band featuring the who’s that of the Wellington Jazz scene.
Musicians; John Rae – Drums, Patrick Bleakley – Bass & Ben Wilcock Piano
