In Praise of the Trombone I
It seems that I have a little obsession in my love for the trombone that is being pushed into making it a tad bigger by the appearance of two separate Isolation Commissions by Jeremy Berkman and Ellen Marple and one more by Marple for Early Music Vancouver.
I have a new friend in Twitter who is keen on these two guys. It happens to be Tom Allen of CBC’s eclectic radio program called Shift. Some of us know he plays the trombone. Of Jeremy Berkman’s Isolation Commission in an underground parking lot Allen wrote this:
Ellen Marple’s two pieces, the Early Music Vancouver one with three different trombones and one sackbut is fabulous.
Who says that Vancouver is “no fun”? Mark Haney’s Isolation Commissions are now past 80 of them.
