“I Was Like WOW: Music for Trombone Alone and With Multimedia” — Complete Performance Recordings (well, almost)

A week ago this evening I performed a solo recital which I entitled “”I Was Like WOW: Music for Trombone Alone and With Multimedia.” As the title suggests, all of the programmed works were either unaccompanied or have multimedia accompaniment. I had no collaborators, and the experience of being alone on stage for the entire performance was new, exciting, and, honestly, a bit scary. The performance went well and was well-received, and I am happy to share the recordings with all of you.

Well…most of them. Apparently Christian Lindberg’s people do not want a recording of his piece on YouTube other than his own, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that my rendition was good!

Michael Davis (b. 1961): Mission Red

Domenico Gabrielli (1651-1690), arr. Micah Everett: Ricercar

Brian Lynn (b. 1954): Doolallynastics: A Brief Torture for Solo Trombone

Howard J. Buss (b. 1951): Alien Loop de Loops

Malcolm Arnold (1921-2006): Fantasy for Trombone

David Fetter (b. 1938): Variations on Palestrina’s ‘Dona Nobis Pacem’

JacobTV (b. 1951): I Was Like WOW

Christian Lindberg (b. 1958): Bombay Bay Barracuda

I had always wondered why the only recording of this piece on YouTube was Lindberg’s own recording; now I guess I know why. Just listen to this one and imagine that I sounded at least as good as him…but please do not imagine me in the same outfit!
