ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“As the title suggests, this is a different kind of trombone album. The tracks are all original compositions, apart from three traditional folk songs, and the general "feel" is mellow yet refreshing. A combination of thoughtful writing, rich arrangements and superb trombone playing, this is a sort of Mike-Oldfield-meets-Carlos-Santana of the trombone world! Highlights, for me, included the crossed rhythms and harmonies in "Stolen Moment"; a wonderfully 'blurred' arrangement of Greensleeves, and the final track, "Closing Circle", which is a smoky-club, slow rock number. There are touches of humour here too, amongst the silky light jazz. A gentle but vital addition to any collection of trombone music. The album can also be played along to, as the backing tracks are available at www.trombonemusic.co.uk. A lovely listen.”
Dan Jenkins (BBC Symphony Orchestra).

Off the beaten tracks is an album of songs for trombone. From lush arrangements of traditional English folk, through sultry echoes of cool jazz to pulsating rhythms borrowed from around the globe. The music is based on simple song structures but uses melody, harmony and rhythm with classical, jazz and world flavours.

Kevin Morgan is the Principal Trombone of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. His music has been performed by Kokoro (the contemporary music ensemble of the BSO), Bournemouth Symphonic Brass and various brass and trombone ensembles in the UK and USA.
