Album Notes
Bluesback Records recording artist Michael Dease is among the front wave of young jazz musicians dedicated to creating a personal and expressive "voice" while preserving the integrity of jazz music. Dease has toured the world as a performer, composer, arranger and educator receiving high praise from audiences and critics alike. His trombone playing speaks of many influences, weaving intricate, exciting lines towards pretty notes with an enchanting tone, and has been hailed by jazz legend Curtis Fuller as “absolutely amazing”. Dease has received the International Trombone Association’s Frank Rosolino Award, J.J. Johnson Prize and the Kai Winding jazz ensemble trophy. He was named a 2004 Yamaha Young Performing Artist, earned a Best Jazz Instrumentalist distinction from the June 2004 edition of DOWNBEAT magazine and received a 2007 ASCAP Young Jazz Composer Award


Seven Trombones, The Rhythm Section, And Some special guests make up this fine recording.

Rapid fire 'bones are everywhere, led by Marshall Gilkes on the opening track "Personal Trainer" I thought Scott Whitfield had the fastest horn in the land, but these cats give him a run for the money. Nice piano solo by Djuliarso.

"Wee Dot" JJ Johnson's classic is bop from the top...Everyone swings in this fine tribute to JJ.

"It's Alright With Me" Romping along with this gem is the drummer whose time is railroad perfect. The arrangement is solid and the solos are marvelous.

Everybody solos on this Slide Hampton tune ( Slide's Blues) and what a way to close out a very hip album. The message is clear, the tunes are great, the players are top notch and they know the meaning of 'takin' care of biz and gettin' it all'....The trades are superb and then some.

I appreciate the artistry, the whimsy, and above all, the pure jazz with no affectation. In other words, this is the real deal with the right feel. 5 Stars

I can't help but repeat myself. I feel the same way about this CD "Dease Bones" as I do about Michael Dease's other CD called "Clarity". Both are utterly amazing and I can't stop listening to them. Seeing him live was a REAL trip. Just when I thought I heard it all concerning trombone all my life, DEASE comes along and sets a new standard to measure other bone players by. AMAXZING!!!!!

Dease Bones
I actually bought this album for my 19-year old son, who is a trombone player and is also a drummer in a band called Toad. An opportunity to bond, I thought. I read a review and thought he might like it. Couldn't get it on Amazon, my usual source. Not only got it on CD Baby (which offered wonderfully rapid response), but laughed out loud in my office when I read their e-mail telling me the CD was on the way. Well, I'm not sure who likes the album more. I try to keep it in my car because I like the jazz - my son wants it for the innovative rhythms and intepretations to share with his band. Thank you CD Baby for a wonderful buying experience; thank you Mr. Dease for a wonderful musical experience.
