Album Notes
Aaron Misenheimer: In the spring of 2006 I toured the southeastern US as a soloist. The tour began with the premiere of five works at Florida State University and concluded after 13 solo recitals and performances at the North Carolina Trombone Festival and Eastern Trombone Workshop. Within the first week of touring audiences had convinced me to record the works which resulted in this album. I have also included a new concerto by James Woodward that I think will add a substantial work to the bass trombone repertoire. I was very fond on the first and final movements of James’ tenor concerto so I had him transcribe these and write a new second movement to form the bass trombone work. The album title came from Richard Zarou’s hip-hop piece which opened the tour performances. The piece title has absolutely nothing to do with a program however. Richard wanted something unrelated such as “Sonata No. 2” and I wanted something stupid and catchy. Together we came up with the piece’s final title and what else could I call this album? The premiere of the Zarou featured dancing girls, therefore you may wish to listen to this album only when attractive dancers are present. However you listen, I hope you enjoy this recording.

Aaron Misenheimer is a bass trombone soloist and advocate for audience friendly new music. As a soloist he has performed at every major university in the US Southeast, at the Eastern Trombone Workshop, and at the North Carolina Trombone Festival. His goal in solo performance is to make the performance enjoyable for traditional audiences and to bring new audiences to the bass trombone and to instrumental music. He accomplishes this by introducing diverse styles of music to the bass trombone including jazz, hip-hop, and rock and by increasing audience interaction through theater works. His performances are equal parts fine art and entertainment and may contain serious music next to works utilizing juggling, flirting, dog squeaky toys, or dancers. In addition to his role as a soloist Misenheimer is an active freelancer, subbing with Charlotte and North Carolina Symphonies, and is Professor of Trombone at Gardner-Webb University. He received the BM from UNC-Greensboro and the MM from The University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
