Description

An extremely well researched collection of anecdotes and stories that traces the history of jazz trombone from its early inception to the present. A special feature is the inclusion of many lesser-known though incredibly gifted players.

“This book is a masterpiece! Kurt Dietrich has already established his reputation as an authority on jazz with his excellent book on the trombonists of the Duke Ellington orchestra, “Duke’s ’Bones”, Ellington’s Great Trombonists.” His work in this wonderful collection of history, anecdotes, and stories is extremely well researched and documented. He traces the history of jazz trombone from its early inception through the big band era, bebop, new music, european, world music, up to the present. One of the strengths of this book is his inclusion of many lesser-know trombonists – some of whom were “monsters” albeit overlooked. Although a serious document, “jazz ’bones” is very enjoyable reading.

“Jazz ’bones” will certainly take its place alongside the best volumes on music history and is without question required reading for all trombonists and lovers of jazz. Bravo, Kurt Dietrich! (Jiggs Whigham) An extremely well researched collection of anecdotes and stories that traces the history of jazz trombone from its early inception to the present. A special feature is the inclusion of many lesser-known though incredibly gifted players.
