Album Notes
Neal Bennett, Trombone
With Brian Nesselroad, percussion (tracks 5 and 7)

Nearly five years in the making, Ziggurat is the brain child of Ontario-based trombone virtuoso, Neal Bennett. This album explores four major Canadian works for multiple trombones, all multitrack recorded by Bennett: Jocelyn Morlock’s thunderous Sequoia, which evokes both the majesty and fragility of Canadian West Coast forests; Farshid Samandari’s Ziggurat, a muscular evocation ancient ritualism and competition, pitting two soloists against one another over a roaring chorus of trombones and percussion; Continual Awakening by Roydon Tse, a unique and deftly-crafted work inspired by a conductor’s plight with anterograde amnesia; and Toronto composer Scott Good’s Liquid Metal, a kaleidoscopic tour de force for ten trombones. This album also includes three works for solo trombone: Indigo, Rob McKenzie’s tribute to the trombone’s history as a revered vehicle for jazz and blues; Morlock’s After the Rain, a piece inspired by the artwork of Max Ernst, especially commissioned by Bennett for this recording; and the infamous Basta by the Swedish composer Folke Rabe.

Hailed by the press as “a trombone virtuoso without doubt,” Neal Bennett is a founding member of the nationally lauded iTromboni quintet and a dedicated interpreter of the music of our time.
