WHY
Why not? As most young trombone players quickly realize, it's not always fun being stuck in the back row of the band or orchestra. So, in 1999 we took it upon ourselves to make a break for it - not just for us but also for aspiring trombone players everywhere. We wanted to move out of the back row and show that the trombone can be a beautiful sounding and virtuosic instrument.

The problem was what to play. If you haven't already noticed, there isn't much written for trombone quintets. We were fortunate to come across Tommy Pederson' s beautiful melancholy tune of 'Wishing Well' but one piece only goes so far. It didn't take us long to figure out that we would have to make our own music. We also realized that good music is all over the place ... just waiting to be played. Soon Ken was doing his best Lisa Simpson impression for the sax solo in the 'Theme From the Simpsons', Volkan was making his operatic debut while leading us through the chorale of the ‘Overture to Nabucco’ and Neal was working on growing wings for ‘The Flight of the Bumblebeasts’. Jim did his best trying to make other brass players jealous with the "improved" trombone-only version of ’Fanfare for the Common Man’ and Greg was busy finding a dance partner for ‘Dango's Tango’

We also enlisted help. I Tromboni was fortunate to work with fellow tronbonists Gordon Cherry, Greg Cox and Doug Sparkes of The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, as well as Jeremy Berkman and Sharman King of the Vancouver Opera. Their beautiful playing on ‘Elsa's Procession to the Cathedral’ under the conducting baton of Martin Berinbaum was greatly appreciated. A special mention to Andrew Poirier, an original member of I Tromboni who moved away to study but greatly contributed this project. Andrew is heard on tracks 1 - 4, 6, 11, 12, and 14. As of December, 2005 Andrew will be rejoining the Team.
