Product details

From Oz comps to Big Band - 'WindSong' captures them all!

It is unique to combine so many eclectic styles featuring bass trombone on the one disc. "It really does show off the instrument" said trombonist Eric Klay.

The eclecticism found in 'WindSong' is realised in pieces like 'Tropical Funk' featuring the superb improvisational skills of saxophonist John Barrett juxtaposed against new Australian compositions by Ross Edwards: 'Maninya IV', 'Sonata for Two Trombones' by Lawrence Whiffin, and Paul Sarcich's 'Music for Tubes and Sticks'.

Fantastic arrangements of Ellington's 'Don't Get Around Much Anymore', Gershwin's 'I've Got a Crush on You', and Richard Rodgers' 'Nobody's Heart Belongs to Me' complete the line-up.

Eric Klay's list of credentials is impressive: principal bass trombone with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra since 1977; and concert, cabaret shows, film scores and recordings for artists including John Farnham, Debra Byrne, Anthony Warlow, Sammy Davis Jnr., and Frank Sinatra.

In 1986 Klay commissioned, and gave the first performance of, Paul Sarcich's 'Concerto for Bass Trombone and Orchestra' to enthusiastic audiences.

Duration: 57 min.

Booklet includes brief programme notes.
